Advertise Roles

Volunteers fair

The Volunteer Centre is a local charity that helps you to recruit volunteers.   Over 600 local groups are supported to help set up and run volunteer programmes.  To deal with the 5000 volunteer enquiries each year we use the Do-it volunteering website which has been completely revamped.  It is easy to set up an account and this means local people can apply for your volunteer roles online 24 hours a day.  You will be instantly notified and can track enquiries as well as add or remove volunteer roles.

The following guidance will help you through the initial registration process for a new do-it account. Setting up is a bit fiddly however it is more straightforward post registration. If you get stuck we are here to help.
