Referral and Support of Volunteers

One of the core functions of any Volunteer Centre or Bureau is the referral of volunteers. On average we deal with approximately 1000 volunteers per year. Our aim is to match up the skills of volunteers with the volunteering opportunities offered by organisations.

Increasingly, we are receiving requests for volunteering opportunities from emails, or those who have accessed potential opportunities the online database of volunteering opportunities.

The basic tenet of volunteering is that the volunteer engages in this activity of their own free will and, consequently, they get some return from engaging in this process. Obviously, the organisation they volunteer with gain from the volunteer’s participation but the volunteer also benefits. The benefits gained by the volunteer are many and varied and can include:

  • Learning new skills
  • Becoming more confident
  • Puttting some volunteering experience on their CV
  • Getting a reference
  • Doing something they enjoy
  • Finding new interests
  • Staying active and healthy
  • Getting out and meeting people
  • Giving something back to the community
