Do you want to volunteer across the City, supporting lots of organisations but only complete one recruitment and training process?
Be able to use your Passport to identify that you have been trained, DBS checked and able to respond to helping out at one off volunteering requests or regular slots. The scheme is flexible around your time and skills.
Volunteering Matters will act between you and the organisation confirming any practicalities before you arrive to start volunteering.
