Community Action Suffolk provides advice and support to organisations to create and manage volunteering programmes and to find suitable volunteers for their organisation.
Our support covers the entire Volunteer Journey: Plan, Support, Recruit and Impact. We have a specialist officer to support Employer Supported Volunteering and we manage the Volunteer Suffolk website for advertising volunteer opportunities.
The volunteering team works across Suffolk working within all of the local authority boundaries.
We have also launched a Suffolk volunteering survey to find out why people may or may not volunteer. This will help us understand the impact of volunteering in Suffolk communities and plan for the future.
Learn how to attract, value and support volunteers.
Volunteer Suffolk has new volunteers registering on the website daily.
