Whether you are an organisation already working with volunteers or are just setting up your volunteer programme, we can offer support and advice on recruiting and supporting your volunteers.
NEWS Volunteer Connect is now live
From 4 January 2017 all volunteering opportunities will be available through our new database Volunteer Connect.
The new database provides vastly improved options both for prospective volunteers and you as volunteer involving organisations. The improvements include:
- better search functions for prospective volunteers by area, organisation, distance from home, type of organisation, type of activity and times needed so that prospective volunteers can find the best matched opportunities
- prospective volunteers will be able to register and contact organisations directly on-line to express an interest or request more information so avoiding delays in contacting you. You can also make a more speedy response to ensure prospective volunteers see that you value their interest
- organisations will be able to register on-line and then directly add and remove their own opportunities as well as amending contact details or opportunity information. You may still complete our volunteer opportunity template and we can add the information to the new database for you but you will have the option to be more in control of your opportunities and organisation details
To register or to view and add new opportunities to Volunteer Connect please click here or on the log in / register button above.
If you did not notify us that you wanted your opportunities to be transferred to Volunteer Connect, they will no longer be available through our website. To check if your opportunities are still available either register by clicking here or search all the available opportunities here.
