We support organisations and community groups to find new volunteers. Your time and skills will help our sector to thrive and you will be making a vital contribution at the same time!
Our volunteers help us to put Unity back into Community!
Volunteering plays a major role in our communities for the benefit of our economy.
Most charities and community support groups depend on volunteers to help deliver their activities. Together they deliver a wide range of essential and popular support services covering health and care, culture, recreation, sport, hobbies and many other interests.
According to the report “The Value Of The Charity Sector” produced by The Charity Commission in 2019, there are 168,000 charities in England and Wales, most of which are small; around 75% have income of less than £100,000, often a lot less!
Almost 1 in 2 adults in the UK volunteer at least once a month, with over 2 billion hours being spent volunteering each year. This is equivalent to 1.25 million full-time employees, similar to the total employment across the manufacturing, construction and property sectors combined!
So there’s plenty of opportunity and clearly, if you want to get involved, you won’t be alone.
Become a volunteer
Volunteering will give you the opportunity to make new friends, connect with your community and gain a sense of achievement.
