Are you looking to try something new, gain new skills, have some fun? Volunteering could be for you!

Volunteers get involved in all sorts of exciting activities and projects, helping communities in many different ways.

It's easy to find an opportunity - go to and have a look at what is available.

Fiona Liddell, Volunteering Development Manager at WCVA, offers some tips for volunteers on making the most of the new Volunteering Wales website New website to help you get into volunteering

As part of our wider commitment to ensuring equitable bilingual services, we aim to post all opportunities on the website in both Welsh and English. Here is information that we hope will make things just a little easier.

If you would prefer to talk to someone who can help you  find something that suits your interests, goals and availability, you can contact or visit your local volunteer centre.

If you're unsure about the kind of volunteering opportunity you'd like to be involved in, perhaps these real life stories of people's volunteering experiences will give you an idea.

The amount of time you commit can range from a one-off involvement to a regular commitment of a couple of hours a week (or more if you have the time). Everyone can volunteer. Your age, background and previous experience don't matter - there is an opportunity out there to suit you.
