Six Platforms to Recruit Volunteers Locally

Updated: May 30, 2023

Volunteer recruitment consistently comes out top of the agenda and concerns for many charities. Whilst the content and appeal of your volunteer opportunities play a key role in your organisation's chances of successful volunteer recruitment, it's also important to ensure you're exploring all potential avenues of advertisement, to spread your message far and wide.

We've therefore put together a list of advertising opportunities in the local area, to help you in your volunteer search.

Uni of Bath SU: You can share your volunteer opportunities on the University of Bath Students Union site here:

BaNES Community Volunteer Service website: To add roles, just email HCRG at and they'll talk you through the steps or you can simply sign up here. You can view all existing roles here.

  • If you upload your advert to the Community Volunteer Service website above then we can also include your volunteer opportunity (if you let us know when it's uploaded) in our next 3SG Monthly Community Newsletter that goes out to 2,000+ local residents across BaNES at the beginning of each month.

Co-op Free Local Volunteer Advertising: You can create a free account here and view all listings here. Charity Digital: You can sign up to this platform for free and add free volunteering vacancies (you only have to pay to advertise paid vacancies). You can view current listings here. Reach Volunteering: An online platform that enables charities to find a volunteer with professional skills in a wide range of areas including marketing, digital, finance and HR for short or long-term projects. Free to charities with an annual income under £1m:

We will also be hosting an online event for local organisations in need of volunteers, on Monday 27th March, 3 - 4PM; register your interest for 'BaNES Community Volunteer Service - How your charity can advertise volunteer opportunities locally' here.

This event will be hosted by 3SG, in partnership with the BaNES Community Volunteer Service and St. Mungos.
