Volunteer Connections

We help prospective volunteers find interesting and rewarding placements and support organisations to provide good quality volunteering programmes. 

Volunteer Connections is Plymouth’s only Volunteer Centre. We Have Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation & the Investing in Volunteering (IIV) Quality Standard by the National Council Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).

We match people to appropriate volunteer roles by passing on information about local volunteering opportunities to those interested in voluntary work. Volunteer Connections runs confidential drop-in sessions every Tuesday’s 10-1, Wednesday’s 1-4 and Thursday’s 11-2pm where members of the public can meet with one of our advisers who will help them find a suitable voluntary role based on their skills and/or interests. This is a free service for people looking to volunteer.
