Supporting your community
Royal Voluntary Service volunteers have been supporting their local communities since 1938.
Our volunteers offer vital services and practical help to local people in need of a little extra support.
Our rewarding roles are a great way to give back and get involved with your local community. From visiting people who are isolated and struggling at home, to helping out at a community lunch or social club, there’s plenty of choice.
If you live in England and want a totally flexible role you could sign up as an NHS Volunteer Responder where you pick up tasks via an app on your smart phone. The scheme includes a variety of roles.
We help people find ways of using their individual skills, talents and time to support others.
