Looking for volunteers

We help local organisations and initiatives who are looking for volunteers, to find people who want to volunteer.

We know that volunteer involvement takes place in a variety of ways and within a range of structures and organisations. We support local volunteering to happen across voluntary and community, public and business sectors.

We believe that volunteers should be well managed, treated equally, fairly and with respect. We promote opportunities that reflect the core values of volunteering:

  • choice
  • diversity
  • mutual benefit
  • recognition

We reserve the right to not promote volunteering opportunities which we believe don’t fit with these values. For more details read our opportunity guidance (PDF) on how we decide which volunteering opportunities we promote.


Promote your volunteering opportunities with us

If you’d like to promote your local volunteering opportunities with us and find a volunteer for your organisation, follow these simple steps:

Quality of information is key to helping potential volunteers make choices about the roles they undertake. It’s important to take the time to think about the information you provide on the opportunity registration form.

If you need any help get in touch with us on or 01273 234826.

We are open to enquiries by email and phone Monday to Thursday. We aim to respond to all enquiries within seven working days.


Looking for student volunteers?

If you want to recruit students from  the University of Brighton, get in touch with the university’s established community volunteering service called Active Student on or 01273 644145


Looking for trustees?

The Community University Partnership Programme has a trustee matching group where you can promote trustee vacancies to Brighton University staff who are interested in becoming trustees.

The group is hosted on a platform called Ning, and you will be asked to complete a simple sign up process.


Overseas opportunities

We can’t promote overseas volunteering opportunities as the website which we use doesn’t allow us to. To find out if do-it can advertise your opportunity for you email
