We aim to support, promote and develop volunteering opportunities within the Canterbury District. If you are a local charity, a volunteer or community group or not for profit organisation, a Public Sector organisation or Private Sector organisation or if you are seeking volunteers, please contact us.

Referral and Support of Volunteers

One of the core functions of any Volunteer Centre or Bureau is the referral of volunteers. On average, we deal with approximately 1000 volunteers per year. Our aim is to match up the skills of volunteers with the volunteering opportunities offered by organizations.
