Need Volunteers?

Good news! You can now upload your organisation’s profile and roles to our online database, Volunteer Connect, and start searching for volunteers now. Click here to register or upload roles.

We provide information and support around setting up new volunteer programmes, good practice in volunteer management and current volunteering issues. We also offer Volunteer Management Training and run the Hackney Volunteer Managers’ Forum.

Volunteer Managers Forum
Thank you to everyone who came to our last forum – you can read the latest Volunteer Management Forum Notes here. Our next event takes place during Volunteers Week 2017.

Thursday 1 June, 1 – 4pm / Volunteer Managers Forum and Networking Lunch at St Joseph’s Hospice
If you work with or support volunteers in Hackney, join us for an informal networking lunch and share your experiences, challenges and learning. Free event, please email to book your space.

In addition to this we can help you with the following:

  • Listing your opportunities in bulletins distributed across the borough
  • Highlight your role as Opportunity of the Week on the volunteers page of this website and through our social media channels
  • Put you in touch with specialist volunteers for one off roles or projects – for example graphic designers, film-makers, carpenters and translators – read more here.
