Book a Volunteering Advice Appointment

Southwark Residents can book a volunteering advice appointment with our Volunteer Adviser to help you find your perfect volunteering opportunity. 


Our volunteer advice appointments are now paused for Summer while we work on a improved volunteering database, and will reopen in September.

What Happens During a Volunteering Advice Appointment?

Your volunteer advice appointment will take place over the phone or in person. One of our friendly volunteer team will discuss your interests with you and why you want to volunteer. We will then do some research and send you a personalised list of volunteer opportunities.

Preparing for your volunteer advice appointment                                                       

You may find it useful to ask yourself a few questions before attending your volunteer advice appointment:

  • Why do you want to volunteer?
  • What do you want to gain from volunteering?
  • What times and days can you commit to volunteering?
  • What group of people would you like to help?
  • Would you like to volunteer near where you live or could you travel to another part of Southwark borough?
