Welcome to Volunteer Centre Dorset

Volunteering makes a community. There are hundreds of projects and activities to get involved with. There are roles to suit your availability, whether weekly or one-off events. There is a wide variety of positions available for all skills, and there is always room to help your community.

Come and talk to us and we can match your skills and free time with a suitable and fulfilling vacancy. Alternatively you can register online.

Our Dorchester office in Acland Road is normally open Monday to Thursday, 9am to 4.30pm and appointments only on Friday. Please note if you are travelling to see us it is advisable to phone us to make an appointment so that one of our team can assist you.


I Want to Volunteer

There are many ways to find information about volunteering and get involved. Many people will just contact local branches of organisations and ask if they can help. However, other people may be unsure what they want to do and if you are new to the area you probably don't know all the local organisations that use volunteers. We have details of hundreds of organisations and thousands of volunteer positions and details are constantly updated so we can offer accurate information to potential volunteers.

I Need Volunteers

Our volunteering opportunities website has a self-service section for organisations to manage information about their organisation, advertise opportunities, and to contact volunteers who are suitable for specific opportunities. At the Dorset Volunteer Centre details of voluntary organisations and their current volunteer opportunities are all listed on VC Connect, our online volunteering database.


About VCD

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 help 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 encourage and support volunteering by everyone, irrespective of age, education, background, health or wealth.
