We recruit volunteers for exciting roles with great charities and community groups. In 2015 we brokered over 300 placements through this website and from face to face meetings with potential volunteers. The value of the time donated is around £½ million a year.

We work with nearly 200 volunteer-involving charities all over Gloucestershire but if you live in the Forest of Dean, you should also contact Forest Voluntary Action Forum. as well. There are many ways to find volunteer opportunities with us:

Arrange an informal meeting to talk through what you want to do

We meet people in both Cheltenham and Gloucester. We start by understanding why you are looking to volunteer. From that we suggest opportunities for you to consider. If you want, we'll try and put you on the phone to a suitable charity there and then. We know that many people prefer to give it more thought so we give you the details to take away. To book a meeting, please contact us. Thinking of making a referral to us? Please see here
