Volunteering Barnet Events

Volunteering Barnet will provide a programme of open sessions and events across the borough in central community areas such as libraries and community centres where you can meet one of the team and find out more about volunteering.

Our fantastic volunteering fair is coming up soon. Find your perfect match with organisations of all shapes, sizes and causes all across Barnet. Read more about this free event here.


We run a drop-in session every week for volunteers and people thinking about volunteering. You can meet one of our friendly volunteering "matchmakers" to ask any queries you might have about volunteering, and discuss any issues you are having. Two of the many reasons people come to see us at our drop-in has been to find out how to register for an opportunity, and to ask for help finding an opportunity suitable for them. The drop-in is entirely free and there's no need to book.

Drop-in to see us at any time within the dates and hours below for a casual conversation on how we can help.

Across April, we are hosting our drop-ins at two locations for the first time.
