VCH is the lead organisation in Hackney, working to enable, promote and support volunteering across the borough. We provide a range of services to strengthen and facilitate volunteering. We have over 450 voluntary organisations offering a massive range of opportunities from music-making, web design to catering and event management. Through 1:1 support, volunteers and organisations are matched to meet both their needs, while our expert support and training ensures that the volunteering experience is the best it can be. We support organisations to develop interesting opportunities and follow best practice in volunteer management. We also lead on strategic promotion of volunteering across the borough, developing partnerships with key organisations to ensure that Hackney residents can benefit from all the positive effects of volunteering.
