Volunteering is when you choose to give your time to help others, either in your local community or elsewhere. It can take lots of different forms – formal or informal, individual or in groups, indoors or outdoors. Volunteers contribute a wide range of skills such as administration, IT, care for children/elderly people, accountancy, gardening and sports. Volunteers don’t get paid, instead they get the satisfaction of helping others, a chance to make new friends and an opportunity to develop new skills.

Volunteer Centre Hackney places people across the borough of Hackney into a range of volunteering roles which can lead people back into part or full time work, or can be a way to just spend time benefitting the community.
