Volunteer Support Service
What we do
The Volunteering Support Service based at Northumberland CVA works to support organisations with the recruitment of volunteers and helps those who are interested in undertaking volunteering to find roles within local groups and organisations.
One to one support for those interested in volunteering
Our volunteer brokerage service is designed to provide one to one support for anyone who is interested in volunteering. Whether you are new to volunteering or have previous experience our team at NCVA can offer a range of support to help you identify a role. By working with you on a one-to-one basis we find out more about what you want to gain from volunteering, the skills and experiences that you have to offer and areas, causes or groups that interest you. This then helps us identify volunteering opportunities that match what you are looking for.
Our Frequently Asked Questions sheet provides answers to some of the questions people often have around volunteering , but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you can’t find the information you are looking for and we will be happy to talk through any queries you may have with you.
Support for organisations
Volunteers are the lifeblood of local organisations and make an enormous contribution to local communities. Our service works to support organisations who need volunteers to assist with their activities by helping with the creation of role descriptions and supporting recruitment through the promotion of opportunities through our volunteer recruitment platform and website. Organisations can register on our system directly and add their vacancies by following VMS (vcconnectsystem.org.uk) and then clicking on the blue button marked ‘Register’.
