Volunteering and the voluntary sector
We recognise the value of volunteering, both to individuals and to the wider sense of community found in Wandsworth
Levels of volunteering are viewed as an important indicator of active citizenship with direct benefits for both the local community and the personal development of the volunteer themselves.
Thousands of local people give up their time each week to be active in their local community whether as parent governors, sports coaches or befrienders.
We want to encourage more volunteering and we invest directly in the borough's Volunteering Service. The service, called Volunteering Wandsworth, focuses on all aspects of volunteering in the Borough:
- Helping individuals to register and become volunteers
- Assisting charities, organisations, private and voluntary sector to successfully involve volunteers
- Providing specialist support for those individuals and groups who have extra needs
- Brokering good volunteering placements
