www.volunteering-wales.net is the national volunteering website database for Wales. It is a one-stop shop for volunteering and currently there are nearly 6000 opportunities to choose from.
If your club, community group, organisation, charity or event needs
volunteers you can now register and advertise on the Volunteering
Wales website. This will enable you to upload your volunteering
opportunities directly to the website and to manage your
opportunities to ensure that potential volunteers get the most
up-to-date information about what is available to them.
The online tutorial will
help you to get started and the website gives step by step
instructions on how to register.
Once registered, you can advertise volunteering opportunities at
any time. We welcome all kinds of volunteering opportunities based
in Wales: long term, short term, one-offs, home based, online, etc.
We intend to develop the events section of the website and
encourage organisations to post opportunities for volunteers, or
groups of volunteers, to help out at specific events.
We accept volunteer opportunities from voluntary, public and
private sector organisations.
Describing your volunteering opportunities
The website includes helpful tips on how to
advertise volunteer roles which will be attractive to volunteers
and an example role
description is available, in English and in Welsh.
Opportunities should be posted in both languages wherever possible.
Your local volunteer
centre can help you to develop and advertise attractive
Marketing your volunteering opportunities
Once you've registered your volunteering opportunity on the
Volunteering Wales website, volunteer centres can promote them for
you through avenues including Facebook and Twitter, by direct email
to volunteers and at community outreach events.
