The Dorset Volunteer Centre is part of a national network of volunteer centres that help voluntary and community organisations recruit and manage their volunteers, and helps people interested in volunteering to find interesting and enjoyable opportunities.
Our centre covers the whole of Dorset (except Bournemouth and Poole which have their own centre)
We have an office in Dorchester and we also run outreach points in 8 other locations
We attend local events, shows and public meetings to publicise volunteering and recruit new volunteers
We maintain a comprehensive database of volunteering opportunities
We encourage and support volunteering by everyone irrespective of age, education, background, health or wealth. Volunteering is a way for all residents to get involved in their community.
The Centre is accredited by Volunteering England, the national body that sets standards of service and confidentiality for volunteer centres.
