Want to volunteer?

If you want to volunteer then we are here to help.  We make it easy for you to find volunteering.  You can search our database of volunteering opportunities in the 'Volunteer Now' box on the right of this page or if you prefer you can come in to our offices on Leith Walk and speak to one of our advisors.   Find out more

Do you want some extra support? 

If you are thinking about volunteering yourself or if someone you support or care for is considering it and you would like a little more help and advice perhaps because of health, disability or past offences, you can come to one of our Health and Wellbeing Thursday Information Sessions.

These drop-in sessions give you or your client the chance to meet our Health and Wellbeing team and look at options.

The Health and Wellbeing team can help you or your client:

  • consider whether volunteering is the right option at the moment
  • think about what to take into account when looking at volunteering
  • look at what kind of volunteering opportunities are available
  • contact and make arrangements with appropriate organisations.

A further one-to-one appointment can be made to discuss particular circumstances if needed.

The Health and Wellbeing Team Information Sessions are held:

Volunteer Edinburgh, 222 Leith Walk, EH6 5EQ
Thursdays 2pm to 4pm

Walpole Hall, 23 Palmerston Place, Edinburgh, EH12 5AW
Thursdays 11am to 3pm

If you cannot attend these sessions for any reason or would like more information before you come, contact:

Sarah Cleary at sarah.cleary@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk
or telephone 0131 561 8307

Nick Woodhead at nick.woodhead@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk
