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.
Not sure where to start, what the right volunteering opportunity is for you or need some specific support to get into volunteering? You can get in touch with us here and we'll be happy to help.

We want you to get the most out of your volunteering experience and therefore ask that you apply for a maximum of three opportunities in any given month.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
