About Us

Volunteer Centre Dorset

"Volunteer Centre Dorset supports volunteers and charitable organisations across Dorset."

At the Volunteer Centre, we are passionate about all things volunteering! Whether you are looking for a fulfilling voluntary role, or need volunteers for your organisation, we can help.

Our work is focused around the ambition to offer Leadership, Inspiration, Facilitation and Expertise, or LIFE, to those throughout Dorset who wish to volunteer.

Our Mission Statement:

VCD commits to promote and develop volunteering for all, enhancing the quality of LIFE for residents throughout the county.

We believe that there is a volunteering role for everyone, irrespective of age, background, ability, or health, and we will strive to find the best role that suits you. We love to promote opportunities for all, so you may see us out and about across Dorset inspiring people in our community to get volunteering.

The aim of the Volunteer Centre is to support individuals find rewarding volunteering opportunities and help them through this role. We also help charitable organisations gain volunteers and support them in looking after their volunteers, whether this is through general guidance or offering training courses to the organisation and their volunteers.

As well as placing and supporting volunteers, we also offer various services, including a wide variety of training courses, DBS checks, and ID badges. Click here to have a look at our full range of services.

The staff at the Volunteer Centre have an extensive knowledge of volunteering in the local community, which makes us the first point of call for volunteers and charitable organisations.

Volunteer Centre Dorset is part of a national network of volunteer centres, and we are an accredited member of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).
