Welcome to the Volunteer Centre Dorset

Are you connected!

The Centre is keen to expand our opportunities across Dorset in order to provide more choice for volunteers. If you are looking for volunteers to support your organisation, why not register on Volunteer Connect and access 100s of volunteers across the county. We are especially keen to find more opportunities for young volunteers.


Have you updated your volunteering opportunities?

This time of the year is one of the busiest for volunteers looking for new opportunities. If you are an organisation and have opportunities please could you update or add any new roles to Volunteer Connect, once you have added opportunities to vcconnect we can advertise you roles via our media outlets such as website and newsletters. Your role could be exactly what volunteers are looking for.
