We are here to support, promote and develop voluntary and community action in Middlesbrough

My organisation needs volunteers

You can register and promote your volunteering roles through Volunteer Connect, our online volunteering system:

Login/Register for Volunteer Connect

Any organisation that involves volunteers can register with us. Once you've registered, you will receive ongoing support to assist in the recruitment of volunteers. We advertise your volunteer roles, act as an initial point of contact for interested people and put prospective volunteers in touch with you.

We can also provide you with information about good practice in working with volunteers. If you need help with documentation (such as volunteer handbooks) or have any questions about the management of volunteers, we are on hand to give advice or refer you to appropriate sources of information.

How we advertise and promote your volunteer roles:

  • Volunteer Connect, our online volunteering system
  • One-to-one appointments with our placement advisors
  • In our fortnightly Volunteering Opportunities ebulletin 
  • On the Middlesbrough Volunteer Centre Facebook

Minimum quality standards

In brief, to be eligible to register, your organisation will have to ensure that the volunteer will be
