Do-it is the UK’s premier website for volunteering and giving time, offering a searchable database of more than a million opportunities to volunteer.
Volunteering is simple. It’s about giving your time to do something useful, without getting paid.
In return you get the satisfaction of time and effort well spent. In addition, volunteering can be a great way to: meet new people learn new skills gain useful experience. It should also be fun!
The range of opportunities is huge. Whatever skills and experience you have, there is something that you can do. The best way to see what is available is to browse on the do-it database.
There are no age-limits on volunteering, but there can sometimes be difficulties for people under-16 or over-65, mostly for insurance reasons. If you have any concerns, ask the organisation that you are applying to.
