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.

They also recruit through Volunteer Centre Birmingham. Charities let us know about their vacancies and we promote them through the Centre and online at https://do-it.org/

How do I get started?

If you are interested in volunteering you can visit Volunteer Centre Birmingham to search, view and apply for the volunteer vacancies we are advertising. This is particularly useful if you need extra support to use the computers or guidance about what role might be suitable for you.

Private, one-to-one, sessions are available and can be booked in advance by phoning 0121 678 8839. These sessions can also be requested on the day of your visit, but are subject to room and staff availability.

Alternatively you can search online at https://do-it.org, a national database of volunteering opportunities.
