We need volunteers

Let's help you connect with more volunteers!

If your organisation or event needs volunteers, you can register to use our Volunteer Engagement and Recruitment Application (VERA) to promote your volunteering opportunities to people that are registered with the volunteer centre.

Here you can register your organisation and submit volunteering opportunities, making them visible to over 20,000 people that are registered with the volunteer centre. 

Registering with us will also allow you to:

  • Access training for your staff and volunteers
  • Get support with developing, amending or implementing policies and procedures
  • Access events and networking opportunities that link you into the local volunteering community; or provide specific support

You can also access additional support via our colleagues in the Manchester Community Central Capactiy Building Team (funding, governance, training etc).

Create a site login (Username and Password) and tell us more about your organisation.

Once you are registered you'll be able to submit volunteering opportunities, manage your volunteer recruitment; and receive information about our latest training, funding and events.

Submit your Volunteering Opportunities

Once you are registered you'll be automatically logged into VERA and be able to advertise your volunteering opportunities.

A collection of 'How to guides' for using VERA are available on our website to help you.


Want to talk to us before you register?

If you'd prefer a discussion about your organisation or volunteering programme, please call 0161 830 4770 or e-mail info@volunteercentremanchester.co.uk; we're always happy to help!

Can your opportunity benefit from short-term skilled volunteers?

We have numerous projects working with organisations and businesses across Manchester who grant their employees leave to volunteer. Check out our Employer supported Volunteering page to find out how your organisation can benefit from working with volunteers from local employers.

Want to attract volunteers from across Greater Manchester?

You can get in touch with other Volunteer Centres and brokerage services across the region such as Bolton CVS, Salford CVS, Thrive Trafford and Action Together - Tameside and Oldham. The NCVO Volunteer Centre Finder is also useful for finding support in the areas your project covers.

You can also register your opportunities with local universities who have dedicated sites – Manchester University, Manchester Metropolitan University and Salford University.
