Looking for Volunteers
The Isle of Wight Volunteer Centre runs a brokerage service to promote volunteering. Registering with us and listing your opportunities will enable us to promote your opportunities throughout our networks. Prospective volunteers can search our online database.
We meet with hundreds of people every year who are interested in volunteering and speak to them about the opportunities and organisations we are in contact with.
To have your opportunities included on our database register here. You will also be able to receive our fortnightly newsletter with funding opportunities, training and events. We are currently running a Volunteer Manager course with optional attached qualification. For more information, check out our Training Page.
Remember, to help us to successfully and effectively recruit volunteers, you should keep the Volunteer Centre up to date with any changes to your opportunities, any new opportunities and details of any forthcoming training dates.
The Volunteer Centre can provide guidance on issues and questions around various aspects of Volunteer Management including:
- Developing new volunteer roles and writing role descriptions
- Advice on risk assessments and DBS checking
- Reimbursing expenses
- Supervision of volunteers
