Talk to someone about volunteering

Looking for a volunteering role that fits your schedule and location? Contacting your local Volunteer Centre is a great way to start. Whether you talk face-to-face or over the phone, the people here can help you find the role that’s right for you, give you advice, and answer any questions you may have.


Before you contact your Volunteer Centre

You may find it helpful to think about:

  • If there is a particular cause you would like to support
  • What skills might you want to use or develop through your volunteering
  • Where you would like to volunteer
  • How much time you feel you can offer

If you are a local group or organisation

You can also register with your local Volunteer Centre, where you can benefit from:

  • Opportunities, information, advice and support for volunteers
  • Help finding volunteers
  • Involvement in campaigns for volunteering

Whether you are a volunteer or a voluntary organisation there are also lots of resources on the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) that can help answer some of your questions.
