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.


Communicating with stakeholders to ensure that they are informed about what is happening in volunteering in Lewisham.


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.
