The range of voluntary posts are huge. Whatever skills and experience you have, there is something that you can do. The best way to see what is available is to browse our website.
The biggest problem for many people is finding the time to volunteer. It can reduce your choices if you do not have much time to spare, but many busy people do find suitable volunteering. Again, have a look on our website and see what is on offer.
There are no age-limits on volunteering, but there can sometimes be difficulties for over-65, mostly for insurance reasons. If you have any concerns, ask the organisation that you are applying to. Once you start volunteering you should usually expect: payment of out-of pocket expenses (eg travel), a clear idea of what your role will be, appropriate training and support. If you are not clear about anything, do not be afraid to ask someone.
Millions of people in this country already volunteer, but many more are needed.
