Find Volunteers

We are proud to manage a huge range of constantly changing volunteering opportunities; matching exciting and fulfilling roles to the skills and interests of community-minded people across BaNES.

Charities, non-profit and community groups, and public sector organisations are all welcome to advertise their volunteer roles on our Simply Connect Database.  We are also happy to promote opportunities through our Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Our Simply Connect system enables organisations to:

  • Login and update your details
  • Advertise your roles
  • Manage & track volunteers who’ve registered interest in your roles
  • View their profile before inviting them to apply
  • Choose how you want prospective volunteers to contact you
  • Search our Volunteer Bank to find suitable volunteers
  • Keep track of all your roles, past and present

All we ask in return is that you respond to all applicants in a timely manner and let us know which of your volunteers came to you through us.

Is your organisation already registered? Simply click here to login and manage all your volunteer opportunities and applicants…
