A female volunteer is dancing with an older man at a community event, they are both smiling and having fun.

Volunteers are absolutely essential to the community and voluntary sector. Without their time, hard work and skills many of our organisations would not be able to run. Indeed, many charities and community groups are volunteer led and run.

The information here will help you to:

  • Recruit volunteers
  • work with volunteers who are claiming benefits
  • work with volunteers from overseas
  • write a volunteer agreement
  • run a volunteer induction

Please consider making a small donation of the price of a cup of coffee to keep my community running. We receive minimal funding which doesn't cover our running costs and your donation means we can keep running and provide free resources for those who need them.
