Helping small groups and organisations connect with people to create meaningful volunteer experiences

Volunteer Centre Leeds is a project of VAL which supports volunteering in Leeds, giving advice and support to organisations and groups to help them set up and manage their own volunteering programme and recruit suitable volunteers

Leeds now has a dedicated Volunteering Platform managed by the Volunteer Centre Leeds and powered by Be Collective. The platform helps streamline the volunteering process for both volunteers and Volunteer Managers. It enables groups, of any size, to advertise and recruit for volunteer roles and opportunities that are available and manage their volunteers in one place, with many great additional features like reporting.

You can access the platform through the Doing Good Leeds website and it’s absolutely free, and simple to get started.
