Volunteering Matters transforms people’s lives through the power of volunteering. We build projects and programmes that respond to some of the most difficult challenges facing individuals and their communities today. From supporting care leavers to helping the most socially isolated get out and about – our volunteers really do change lives.

“It has massively changed my life. Having someone that actually gives an interest and wants to help you. It has made a huge, huge difference”  – Cole, young person leaving care supported by a Grandmentors volunteer

Leave a gift in your will

Give in memory

Donating in memory of a loved one is a personal and special way to celebrate and remember them. Some people choose to collect donations for their chosen charity instead of flowers, to create a lasting impact to a cause that is important to them or their loved one.
