Thinking of volunteering however not sure of where to start? Here are some useful websites and organisations that will get you started: – The national volunteering database that contains over a million volunteering opportunities. – Contains volunteering opportunities, enables you  to connect to a national network of volunteers and is a platform for keeping in touch with volunteer managers and volunteer involving organisations across the UK. – The UK’s busiest charity job site but also contains a large amount of volunteering opportunities.  – Database of Skills Based Volunteering opportunities. – Database of volunteering opportunities and information for over 75 year old volunteers. – Database of volunteering opportunities for 16-25 year olds. – Packed full of information and articles for and about volunteers. – The home of Volunteering England, full of information sheets and resources for volunteers and volunteer leaders alike.


A few to get you started. Many volunteers recommend all the above and I have certainly benefited from them also!


Good Luck!








Plato said, ”Know thyself,” and never were more important words spoken. You must know yourself; what you are doing, what you are saying, what you are feeling, and what you are thinking, so you can bring yourself into harmony with the law. Know yourself.
