Voluntary Action Orkney can help find the right volunteering role for you

We start by asking you to complete a volunteer registration form and giving us two references we can contact.  Please also read our privacy statement telling you how we keep and use your information. 


The volunteer registration form gives us a bit more information about you, your interests, why you want to volunteer and the type of opportunity you are looking for.  To get some ideas for what you might like, you can use the search function below or click on a category to the right to look at current volunteer opportunities.  We can also email or post these out to you – just get in touch to request this.  

On receipt of your registration form and two references, we will contact organisations on your behalf to set up the opportunity and support both you and the organisation as you meet and start in the role.  Our Volunteer Development Worker can also go along with you to the first few sessions if this would give you a bit more confidence as you begin volunteering. 

If the volunteering opportunity you are interested in involves working with children or protected adults, you may need to join the Disclosure Scotland Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) membership scheme and we can provide further help with this too.
