Volunteering opportunities in Dorset
Information on volunteering opportunities in and around Dorset and how to contact the Volunteer Centre.
Did you know that 10 million people put in 90 million hours of voluntary work a week? That over 22 million people are involved in volunteering each year? In monetary terms alone this is worth something like £40 billion a year not to mention the new skills volunteers pick up, the help they give other people, and the sense of worth they get from doing it.
With over 3,000 voluntary and community organisations working in Dorset, there are literally thousands of volunteering opportunities available across the county. The Volunteer Centre Dorset runs drop-in sessions (opens in a new window) across Dorset so you can learn more about opportunities in your area.
Dorset County Council offers all staff (with the exception of schools employees) the opportunity to use one working day per annum to volunteer in the community within Dorset. If you would like to find out about utilising this Dorset County Council benefit please contact Laura Cornette.
