Dear Friends

Thank you for visiting our site.  We regret to inform you that our Brokerage service is currently closed due to 100% funding cuts.  However, we remain passionate about volunteering and are still dedicated to all the amazing volunteers and volunteer involving organisations in Lambeth.  We are working hard to source funding to continue what we consider vital work.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this period of review. 

Please do not stop your search for volunteer roles in Lambeth.  They are all around us – in charities and groups on our streets, our estates, blocks and at the heart of our communities.  Unfortunately, due to funding cuts we currently unable to do the footwork for you and match/broker the amazing people who want to offer their time as volunteers with the amazing groups and organisations who work tirelessly to make Lambeth brilliant and are looking for volunteers. But you can research them and approach them directly.  Please do not give up your search for the right opportunity or for the right volunteer!

We ask you to be patient with us and to rest assured that we are doing all we can to raise awareness of the value of volunteering as a vehicle for social change and to have this work prioritised and funded.  Please watch this space!

Best wishes and Good Luck

Definition of Volunteering

Volunteering is the giving of time and energy, which can bring measurable benefits to the volunteer, individual beneficiaries, groups and organisations, communities, environment and society at large. It is a choice undertaken of one's own free will, and is not motivated primarily for financial gain or for a wage or salary.
