Start Recruiting Volunteers

You can start recruiting volunteers for free on our new VAL Volunteering website.

Our volunteering website will enable you to set up an account for your organisation and post opportunities for volunteers in Leicester and Leicestershire. We will also advertise opportunities in our volunteer drop-in centres across the city and county.

How to submit your volunteering opportunity

  1. Check that you are ready to involve volunteers. Involving volunteers needs a bit of planning to ensure that they are able to make a positive contribution. If you haven’t yet done so, please read our guides on planning for volunteer involvement, recruiting and managing volunteers.
  2. Write a volunteer role description. If you're not sure how to write a strong role description, our recruiting volunteers guide can help. Access the guide
  3. Sign up and register your opportunity. If you haven't already, sign up to become a user on our website and once your organisation is approved you'll be able to start advertising your opportunities.
