The new and improved Volunteering Wales website is a simple, effective and completely free way for organisations to recruit and manage volunteers.

It’s free to use, and over a thousand organisations have already taken advantage to start advertising their volunteering opportunities to the Welsh public.

Wales has a rich history of volunteering, in all the different forms it takes, and now it couldn’t be easier for people to help out in their local communities. Organisations are advertising all sorts of volunteer opportunities all across the country, from working in charity shops, to befriending services, helping organise charity runs and events and more.

Whether you’re an organisation looking for new volunteers, or someone who wants to give back to their community, Volunteering Wales can help you find what you need.

Volunteers are the backbone of the voluntary sector, and at a time when many are pushed for time and money, Volunteering Wales aims to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible so you can find and manage your volunteers with the minimum amount of fuss.

Managed by TSSW (Third Sector Support Wales), Volunteering Wales links volunteers with the voluntary organisations that need them, and it couldn’t be simpler to take advantage of it.
