Who We Are
Our services are specifically tailored to build the capacity of community organisations through good quality volunteer management, while ensuring local people receive the support they need to progress.
Our aims are to improve employment outcomes, build social cohesion, boost mental wellbeing and reduce social isolation.
Our model is to work in partnership with organisations and local people, facilitating the bridging of division across communities.
WHO WE ARE
For almost 20 years our services have enabled over 11,000 people from all backgrounds to share their skills, knowledge and experience with their community.
We also support over 400 local not-for-profit groups by giving them the skills they need to manage volunteers effectively.
We are here to bring out the best in volunteering: for volunteers, for organisations, for the people being helped and for the borough of Hackney.
We are proud to hold Volunteer Centre Quality Accreditation VCQA, which demonstrates that we deliver the five core Volunteer Centre services to a high quality standard: Strategic Development of Volunteering, Good Practice Development, Developing Volunteering Opportunities, Voice of Volunteering and Brokerage.
Our Board of Trustees brings together a range of experts to help us deliver our mission and grow our impact.
Our staff are all dedicated, highly skilled, and passionate about their work.
