They contribute £22.6bn to the UK economy every year.
Everyone can volunteer.

“Promoting and providing employees with meaningful volunteer opportunities helps to attract top talent; engage, develop, and retain employees; boost public image; and improve the bottom line” (Huffington Post)
On as little as 2 days a year you and your team can make a real contribution: through volunteer fundraising — a tin collection during the rush hour can raise up to £500; by giving hands-on expertise to support the Barnet Giving Team. And there are ways to volunteer from your sofa for just 1 hour a week.

What do I need to be a volunteer?
If you’ve the time, commitment and enthusiasm to help others, then you have the makings of a great volunteer. By taking the trouble to get this far you’ve already made a significant step.
If volunteering brings you into contact with children or vulnerable people you’ll need to agree to have a DBS check – which we will organise. If you receive benefits, then you need to let the job centre etc know. We can help you with all of these details.
