Youth Volunteering

Volunteering can help you to learn new skills, help others and have fun.

Our service is for anyone aged 14 and over. Many organisations request that volunteers are 18 or over, however, we do have some opportunities for under 18s. We suggest that once you’ve registered with us you can search for youth volunteering opportunities by doing the following:

* Go to our opportunity search

* Click on ‘Search Opportunities’

* Enter your search criteria and hit the search button to view all available opportunities. Under the ‘search’ button, click on ‘more options’ to view a drop-down of filters. Select the ’16 and under’ checkbox to narrow down your search.

Alternatively, you can register with Vinspired. It is a national database containing volunteering opportunities for young people aged 14 and over. There are a number of organisations (see below) that offer opportunities to young people:

National Citizens Service

The Conservation Volunteers

Duke of Edinburgh award



See the government’s advice on volunteering when you are Under 18.

Good luck with the first steps on your volunteering journey.
