Volunteer Centre Hull is part of Hull CVS.
Our Volunteer Centre provides a range of information and support for people who want to volunteer; for voluntary and community organisations who involve volunteers; and local businesses that engage their employees in team building volunteering.
We advise hundreds of people each year who are keen to find out about interesting and rewarding volunteering opportunities – our Volunteer Centre offers the following services:
- We link people with volunteering opportunities that match their interests, skills and knowledge
- We support people to search on-line for local volunteer opportunities through national volunteering website do-it.org.uk
- We run a brokerage for volunteers and volunteer involving organisations
- We assist voluntary organisations to support and manage volunteers through specialist volunteer management training and good practice guides incorporating The Essential Guide to Volunteer Management
- We teach voluntary and community organisations how to advertise and manage local volunteer opportunities through national volunteering website do-it.org.uk
- We promote and advocate volunteering in Hull; working in close partnership with public sector bodies, the private sector and voluntary and community organisations.
- We support employers to encourage volunteers to take time out during the working week to put something back in the communities in which they live.

Fish Saturday is coming to Hull later this month when the church partnership, Believe in Hull, stages a re-creation of a famous biblical story and will give away thousands of fish.
An NHS Trust has paid tribute to its volunteers after figures showed they complete a total of 15,000 hours’ work for the organisation every year. Humber NHS Foundation Trust marked Volunteers’ Week, which runs from 1 to 7 June, by sending each of its 100 helpers a certificate and thanking them in person.
Every month, 5.6 million people in England give up their time to enable others to take part in sport and physical activity.
Our new strategy for volunteering, Volunteering in an Active Nation, sets out our plans to allow more people to engage in all types of volunteering through sport and physical activity.
