Volunteering is a proven way to help people unlock their potential to build brighter futures. We use volunteering’s unique power to resolve the UK’s most pressing social issues.

Every day we work with inspirational volunteers and our partners to transform lives in their local communities. With more than 20,000 volunteers supporting over 85,000 people in over 100 programmes, we’re leading the UK in volunteering practice, policy and partnerships.

We work with local and national government, the health and education sector and many other organisations to make the biggest impact. We also partner with businesses, Trusts, Foundations and dedicated individuals. Support us and together we can help communities thrive and enable people to reach their full potential through volunteering.

It’s an exciting time for Volunteering Matters – we’re developing new opportunities and growing our services to end social isolation, reduce inequality and build thriving communities across the UK.

If you would like to support us or become a corporate partner, we have a range of ways in which you can get involved.Registered with Fundraising Regulator
