Covid-19 Volunteering and Mutual Support Groups

Birmingham City council has joined forces with BVSC to create the C19 Support Brum partnership, an initiative that will work through existing local neighbourhood structures, voluntary groups, and local elected members to ensure that all parts of the city have access to support, advice, and practical help.

If you want to offer help to your community during the Covid-19 crisis, check out the Offer Local Support page where we'll be regularly posting information and ideas as to how you can make a difference to others.

What is Volunteering?

Volunteering involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that is of benefit to others or the environment.

What can I do in Birmingham?

There are hundreds of volunteering vacancies available across the city with lots of different charities including sports coaching, caring, administration, research, youth work, conservation ... and more!

Some will require a regular commitment while others may be one-off opportunities. Many charities and community groups will advertise their volunteer vacancies on their websites or at their premises. You can also search the national database of Volunteering Do-it.org.

You'll also find many current volunteering vacancies on our Community Noticeboard. If you see something that interests you, please email the organisation directly - you'll find full details of the opportunity by clicking into the notice.

Good luck with your volunteering search.
