Volunteer Centre Camden supports and encourages volunteering and promotes equality of access to volunteer opportunities for all people in Camden. Volunteer Centre Camden works with organisations to develop volunteering opportunities, ensuring high standards in volunteer management.
These are our current projects:
Best Practice Plus
Best Practice Plus supports and develops quality volunteer management practices in Camden. Opportunities to learn about planning, running and sustaining great volunteer projects are offered through one to one meetings, training sessions, volunteer forums and our monthly e-bulletin. Our aim is to help organisations deliver quality volunteer programmes that meet organisation’s needs and offer excellent volunteering experiences to those who take part.
Our matching service is the link between people who want to volunteer and organisations looking for volunteers, and helps volunteering happen in Camden. People volunteer for all sorts of reasons, and many organisations wouldn’t be able to do what they do without volunteers.
We know there’s no one size fits all when it comes to volunteering, which is why we encourage our members to offer volunteering roles in all shapes and sizes. And also why we offer a number of different ways for people to find their perfect match, from monthly volunteering fairs to one-to-one confidential appointments to searching online whenever and wherever is best for you.
We aim to reach all parts of the borough by delivering talks and presentations, hosting and attending events across Camden.
We also have a team of matchmakers who are ready to answer any questions and provide extra support to people to help you get started.

Team UP (Employer-Supported Volunteering)
Want to involve employee volunteers in what you do?
Good news! We have a project called Team UP which can help you do just that.
Let’s face it. Getting in touch with businesses to support what you do can take more time than it’s worth. And that’s where Team UP comes in (to save the day!).
We have a staff member dedicated to making those connections, arranging meetings, and making sure the volunteering on the day(s) – goes well.
Interested? Contact Cynthia by email or phone 020 7424 9990. Good to know: Cynthia’s usual working days are Mondays-Wednesdays.
