VCH maintains a borough-wide database of volunteer vacancies and provides this information to over 1,500 people per year who are interested in volunteering. These vacancies are also:
- displayed on the national volunteering database www.do-it.org.uk.
- listed in urgent opportunities bulletins distributed across the borough
- highlighted as Opportunity of the Week on the volunteers page of this website.
If your organisation would like to use VCH to recruit volunteers you need to complete a form telling us as much as possible about the role(s) you are trying to fill. Register Your Organisation and Opportunity Now!
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.
