Charity information

Volunteer Centre Hackney

For almost 20 years our services have enabled over 11,000 people from all backgrounds to share their skills, knowledge and experience with their community.

We also support over 400 local not-for-profit groups by giving them the skills they need to manage volunteers effectively.

We are here to bring out the best in volunteering: for volunteers, for organisations, for the people being helped and for the borough of Hackney.
