Start volunteering

There are many ways to start volunteering and some might work better for you.
Here are the key routes available through the Volunteer Centre and some questions to think through before you start. 

Come to our drop-in & speak to an advisor


  • You will speak to an advisor face to face
  • The advisors are volunteers so they can see things from your point of view. And if you’re not too sure what kind of role you’d like to do they're in a good position to help you work it out.
  • Find out more about what happens at our drop-in service

This is a great way to explore volunteer roles, especially if you clearly know what kind of role you like. You'll also be able to see what roles are available before you come & see an advisor.
