About Us

Sutton Borough Volunteer Bureau has been supporting people and communities within the London Borough of Sutton for over 50 years. In 1995 we became a registered charity with the aim to support those most in need by using the power of volunteers.

Although now we are known as Volunteer Centre Sutton, our main aim remains to utilise people to support community and individuals, those most in need within Sutton, including the delivery of award-winning volunteer led projects. In 2020 we updated our aims and objectives and became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

How we are funded

Volunteer Centre Sutton is an independent local charity. We raise our own funds mainly through charitable grants and we also welcome anyone to support us, whether you are a volunteer, a resident, a local business or someone who has been helped by us. Learn how you can support us
