Recruiting Volunteers

Volunteer First

Volunteer First External Hyperlink is a free volunteering brokerage service which match-makes potential volunteers with suitable volunteering opportunities in their local community.  Potential volunteers can browse and register their interest in roles and any enquiries received will be forwarded directly to the organisation for processing.  The service is entirely free and mutually benefits both organisations looking for volunteers and individuals seeking interesting volunteering roles.

Last year, Volunteer First received over 2000 enquiries and placed 566 individuals in volunteer roles across Hampshire, demonstrating success in connecting potential volunteers with opportunities across the County.  As mentioned, Volunteer First is entirely free to users and benefits both organisations looking for volunteers and individuals seeking interesting volunteering roles.   

Annual Community Showcase 

Community First also plan and deliver the Annual Community Showcase which provides charitable groups located within Fareham the opportunity to promote the good work they do, attract new volunteers and network with other organisations. 

We will let you know the date of the next Showcase as soon as it is set.
