There are hundreds of different ways to volunteer all over the city. No matter who you are, how much time you have to give or what your reasons for volunteering are, we can help. We have been helping people find voluntary work that's right for them for over 40 years.

Find Opportunities Online

You can search our database volunteering opportunities (on the right). You can filter opportunities by location, category or keyword.

Important Service Notice:

Due to technical problems with a third-party service, our search facility may not be displaying all opportunities correctly.

For more information on our full range of opportunities please contact us here or call 0131 225 0630. You can also drop in to our office on 222 Leith Walk without the need for an appointment and browse our full collection of opportunities.

Come In To The Volunteer Centre

You can also come in to our offices at 222 Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH6 5EQ to search through the opportunities and ask us any questions you have. We have experienced volunteer advisors ready to answer your questions - with no appointment necessary.

We also run a series of drop-in sessions:

  • For Spanish Speakers, Wednesdays 1-3pm.

Update on Wednesday afternoon Spanish Drop-in Sessions
The Spanish drop-ins are up and running again, so please call 0131 561 8307 or email Lara Celini at lara.celini@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk if you would like to make an appointment to speak to one of our Volunteer Advisors.

  • For People Needing Extra Support to Volunteer, Thursdays 2-4pm. More Info

Update on Thursday afternoon Drop-in Information Sessions
From September 2015 the Health & Wellbeing Team have started to reintroduce their Thursday afternoon drop-in. However as a result of building work, there are still some access issues. So if you are intending to “drop-in”, it might be best to phone ahead to find out about the current situation:

Sarah Cleary at sarah.cleary@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk or call 0131 561 8307
Nick Woodhead at nick.woodhead@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk or call 0131 561 8304

Otherwise the following still applies:
If you are thinking about doing voluntary work but you are not sure how to go about it, then come along to our friendly information sessions at Volunteer Edinburgh.

  • Drop in any Thursday between 2.00pm and 4.00pm.
  • You don't need an appointment, just drop in.
  • You can even bring a friend or support worker along with you.
  • You will be able to talk to one of the Health & Wellbeing Team about what you are looking for and we can discuss how we can help.
