There are many different ways to recruiting volunteers. Below are some helpful links to get you started.

From our conversations, still one of the most effective ways is to advertise through your current volunteers and supporters and encourage them to recruit their friends and family!

What we will do to help you


Promote Lewisham volunteering opportunities on our website, social media, events, email newsletters and in person to try and engage new people to volunteer who are not currently connected such as professionals, students and young people. We will encourage individuals to contact you directly.

If you have a volunteering role you would like to advertise please contact

Impact Volunteering

Many individuals are not able to commit to regular volunteering roles so we want to promote one-off opportunities throughout the year for individuals to use their time and skills to help the local community.

If you would like to work with us on an impact volunteering opportunity please contact

Lewisham Local Card – Rewarding Volunteering

If you have volunteers please encourage them to Sign Upfor a free Lewisham Local Card, getting them discounts in over 470 independent businesses.

Mayor’s Awards for Volunteering

The Mayor’s Awards for Volunteering are delivered each year in partnership with Lewisham Council to recognise and reward the invaluable contribution volunteers make in our communities. This is a great way to recognise your volunteers for their contribution over the past year. Nominations usually open in September with the awards happening in November/December.
