Volunteering Opportunities

All Drop-ins are temporarily suspended until further notice

Want to help your community but not sure how or where to start?

There are hundreds of ways for you to get involved, helping all sorts of fantastic charities and community groups to make a difference to people in Southampton. You might want to do something one-off, ad hoc, or regularly and long term. You might want to use your skills or lived experience, or you might want to try something new.

Take a look at the range of opportunities on our website and get inspired!  You can apply online via our website, too. The link below will take you to the community directory on the SO:Linked website. Simply select Volunteering in the 'service type' drop down menu and the current volunteering opportunities will be displayed. If you want to search by category, select volunteering and also the type of volunteering opportunity you'd like (e.g Administration, or Arts, heritage and culture) in 'service area'.

How do I get involved?

All Drop-ins are temporarily suspended until further notice

At SVS, we offer a Drop-in service to help you begin your volunteering journey
Our Confidential Drop-in session is held every week on;

Wednesday afternoon at 'Flourish' in the Marlands Centre, from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm,

Thursday morning at the Voluntary Action Centre in Kingsland Square, St. Marys

Please note, the majority of our opportunities will be within the SO14 - SO19 postcodes. If you want to volunteer in the city please have a look and apply but if you're looking for something local outside of these postcodes, please contact one of the Hampshire Volunteer Centres.

Not convenient, but still have some questions?

If you have any questions about volunteering, but are unable to make it either drop in service, you can contact us confidentially via phone or e-mail on: (02380) 228291 or volunteer@southamptonvs.org.uk
