I want to Volunteer


Meet new people, learn new skills, gain confidence, gain work experience, give something back or test the water!

People volunteer for so many different reasons and volunteers can do almost anything! From helping older people with their shopping, to providing legal advice for a local charity, volunteers make a vital contribution to all aspects of community life.

Every year we meet hundreds of prospective volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who are interested in volunteering with local organisations. Volunteering is a great way to get experience, fill a few spare hours, meet new people and develop some new skills.

We always have a wide range of voluntary opportunities available for people in Derby to get involved in. Whether it be working with animals, the environment, business management or sport we are confident that we have something suitable for you.

Do you want to become a volunteer?

We can help you find the voluntary work that suits you.

We run a drop-in service here at the Volunteer Centre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 10am and 4pm. Come in and chat with one of our Volunteer Centre Advisers, or call them on 01332 342272, to discuss volunteering opportunities or to make an appointment. Or if you have access to email simply drop them a line by following this link email us. 

Alternatively, you can check out all of our volunteering opportunities on the do-it.orgwebsite, and if you see something you're interested in you can register your details there and then.  There are hundreds of volunteering opportunities available covering a huge range of different work areas and doing a multitude of different tasks. So, don't hesitate, give us a call, pop in and see us, or check out the website to find out more.
