I want to volunteer

Volunteering can make a real difference in your own life and the lives of those around you. There are loads of ways to get involved and plenty of organisations that can help you find your dream role.

So how do you go about finding the right volunteering role for you? Here are three steps to follow:

  1. Think about what interests or excites you. This could be something you enjoyed doing before, or something completely new.
  2. Think about what time or skills you can give. With so many opportunities to choose from, it's a great idea to narrow down the choices by deciding what you're willing to give.
  3. Get researching! NCVO doesn't hold a list of roles, there are simply too many. But you can:
  • go to your local volunteer centre
  • search the internet
  • ask friends what they do
  • or check out one of the online opportunity finders below.
