I want to volunteer


Volunteering is a fantastic way of taking part in your local community, learning new skills and meeting people. It’s a regular hobby for almost a quarter of people across the UK and was one of the top 5 New Year resolutions in January 2018.

If you’re looking to volunteer in Barnet, but aren’t sure what roles are available, which organisations you could volunteer with, or how to get started, you’re in the right place! Volunteering Barnet is the official Volunteering Centre in the borough, which means we help people who want to volunteer to find their perfect volunteering opportunity.

Our service is completely free to use and available whenever you’re ready to get involved. You can volunteer in one-off opportunities, or perhaps you’re looking for something more regular to build your skills or confidence? Roles can also be inside or outside, office-based or “on location”: it’s up to you!

To get started, take a look at some of our opportunities (and even apply for a few!) by registering on our opportunities database, Volunteer Connect.
