You're invited!

Royal Voluntary Service is one of Britain’s largest volunteering organisations supporting people's health, happiness and wellbeing wherever we're needed most. Our volunteers provide a helping hand in the NHS, and in local communities across Great Britain.

Want to know more about volunteering?

There's something very special about the difference our volunteers make. As a Royal Voluntary Service volunteer you can help in so many ways, from bringing someone home after a hospital stay or running a refreshment trolley on your local hospital ward, to phoning someone in need of friendly conversation or helping at a neighbourhood social activity club for older people. Everything our volunteers do helps alleviate loneliness, boosts wellbeing and keeps people active and connected to their communities.

Come along and try volunteering for yourself

With Royal Voluntary Service there really is something for everyone – whether you like driving, cooking, chatting, organising or fundraising – we’ve got a volunteer role for you and you'll be part of a great team.

We’re throwing open our doors from 7-9 June to welcome new volunteers during The Big Help Out weekend. Come and find out more!
