Added: 09/06/2021

We are open for appointments

The Volunteer Centre is now open for appointments only at the moment from Monday to Friday, 9.30am until 4.30pm.

We are excited to welcome people back and are offering telephone and in person appointments.

Appointments can be booked by:

We have a new location

Our brand new location is at Leeds Kirkgate Market in the food court.

The market is located in the city centre, very close to the bus station.

The Volunteer Centre was previously located at Merrion House before we moved. We used to run weekly drop-ins before covid and we will be exploring the possibility of restarting this service again in the future.

Who can book an appointment

If you, or someone you support would like help to find a suitable volunteering opportunity please do contact us to make an appointment.

If filling in forms is difficult, English is not a first language, or you just don’t know where to start – we can help – text or call 07340323190.

We also support groups and organisations who would like to host volunteers but are not sure about the process and how to go about it. If you work or volunteer for a small organisation and want help recruiting volunteers, make an appointment and our team of volunteers can advise you.

Takeover our Volunteer Centre space

We are inviting organisations to book out the Volunteer Centre as an event space to promote your volunteering opportunities or host a session.

Our new space at Kirkgate Market can be booked for use from Mondays to Saturdays.
