Volunteer Centre Lewisham is the first step for volunteering within Lewisham, making it easy for Lewisham’s residents, from all backgrounds and abilities, to get more involved in their communities.

We achieve this in four ways:


Supporting individuals to find the right volunteering role: and supporting organisations to find the right volunteers.

Helping individuals to develop skills and confidence and organisations to develop good practice and volunteering opportunities.


Campaigning on behalf of volunteers to ensure that the time and skills given are valued and recognised, locally, regionally and nationally.
