We were established to support the development of voluntary and community groups and volunteering in Hull.

Our aims are to:

  • Promote the valuable work of voluntary and community groups and the importance of volunteering to the City;
  • Support the development of new groups;
  • Bring groups together to share information and good practice;
  • Provide support services which help groups to improve their work for maximum impact;
  • Enable groups to have a voice on issues of common concern.

The services, support and discounts offered by our organisation are prioritised to our members.

  • Raise your Profile–your group’s work can be promoted via our website, monthly e-newsletter and social media channels.
  • Networking–we host various networking opportunities based on your feedback and the needs of the sector.  The Volunteer Managers and Co-ordinators Network is an example of this which came from our members, and provides the opportunity for shared learning and best practice.
