Help for Volunteers

We are committed to supporting and developing volunteering in Merton and have been supporting volunteers for over 35 years. Connecting people, skills and good causes is what we do! Find out below how we can help you:

Volunteer Opportunities

We are dedicated to supporting volunteers by helping you find volunteering opportunities in your local community. The aim is that every resident will be able to give time – be it for one hour every now and then to several hours a week. Whatever time you can give, it will make a difference to your life and your local area. more
Volunteer News
We regularly share news about volunteering, ranging from advice, exciting new volunteering opportunities, awards and recognition and how you can get involved. more

Merton is thriving and we are always hearing great stories of local people doing amazing things for their community. We share stories of just a few ways in which people contribute to our borough. more
