Through our well-established community connections we’re able to locate and post hundreds of up-to-date volunteering opportunities for more than 500 charities and community groups across Hampshire. Whether you want to support others, gain new skills, be more involved in your community, make new friends, share your skills or help shape the future of the voluntary sector – there is something for everyone.

Or are you an organisation seeking volunteers?

 We can assist with finding volunteers in a number of ways including:
  • Advertising on our bespoke Volunteer First website which lists all the positions we have available across East Hants, Havant, Fareham, Winchester & New Forest.
  • Advertising your role via our partnership and network meetings.
  • Advertising on our main website and social media, including feature pieces on organisations and roles.
  • Promotion at Volunteer fairs and external events (where applicable).
The service is entirely free to both non-profit organisations and volunteers. If you would like to proceed with advertising any roles on our website, you can simply register online here to begin.
