How to find the right volunteering opportunity for you

Keen to volunteer but wondering how to ensure you find the opportunity that is right for you?

Consider asking yourself the following questions to help you look for the right opportunity.

  • What's your passion?
  • What motivates you?
  • How much time do you have available to volunteer?
  • What type of setting do you want to volunteer in?
  • What skills do you have to offer or what skills do you wish to learn through volunteering?

Be part of an important and growing movement

We match people who want to volunteer with opportunities in their own community. That way we are providing support where it is needed, right across Britain.

Are you a student, or a younger volunteer?

Calling all younger volunteers, we need your help. You can make a big difference to someone's life by volunteering for just a few hours a week. At the same time, you'll get the chance to learn new skills and have fun. We have plenty of roles available and for many the time is flexible, allowing you to easily fit volunteering into your schedule. If you think volunteering might be for you, find out more about the types of opportunities we have available for our student volunteers.
