Supporting people into Volunteering

Volunteer Centre Leeds helps individual people find meaningful volunteering opportunities.

The team also offers advice and support to organisations and small groups to help them set up and manage a volunteering programme, and to recruit suitable volunteers.

 

Our Aim

Volunteer Centre Leeds creates thriving communities by helping more and more people connect with the right volunteering opportunities.

The benefits of volunteering for both individuals and organisations is invaluable, and can be life changing. This is why Volunteer Centre Leeds has made it their mission to open up access to volunteering for all.

Our Location

The Volunteer Centre is based in Leeds City Centre in the food court area of Leeds Kirkgate Market.

We are open for appointments Monday to Friday 9.30 am – 4.30 pm. Appointments should be booked in advance.

Bookings can be made by emailing volunteering@val.org.uk, or over the phone by text or calling us on  07340323190.

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

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

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 – make an appointment and our team of volunteers can guide you.

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.

Events

The Volunteer Centre team is well equipped to attend or deliver training at events such as volunteer fairs, university open days and employability workshops.

Any upcoming events will be shared here and on the Events and News pages.
