Do you work for a new or established charity or voluntary organisation across the borough of Sutton and are you looking for support with your volunteers?
We are here to help you recruit and retain volunteers and share best practice. Whether you are starting a volunteer programme from scratch or looking to expand your existing activity, we can help! Your main contact is Natasha Blok at email@example.com.
Thank you for your patience with her response as she works part time and helps with over 600 organisations.
What can we help with?
We have multiple ways to help you promote your volunteering opportunities and help support with your processing, retention and reward of volunteers. Join one of our virtual introduction sessions* to learn all about it.
Does it cost?
All our help is provided free of charge, all we ask for in return is that you please do these four things:
This also offers the options of our dedicated online advertising board to help you recruit volunteers. It's the quickest and easiest way to access residents interested in volunteering. It's free and advertises your opportunities 24/7. It also can suggest volunteers who match your role opportunity for you to proactively contact.
If your organisation is already registered, you can create your own personal log in and then link to your organisation. Please be careful to check whether your organisation already exists on the system. Still click the register shown below, and later link to your organisation.

If you wish, in addition you can also sign up to our Volunteering opportunities newsletter.
