Why not volunteer in Lewisham?

Lewisham is an incredibly vibrant borough with lots to get involved in. In Lewisham we’re lucky to have over 800 community groups, social enterprises and charities, many of which rely on the generously given time and talents of volunteers.

VAL is the first step for volunteering in Lewisham, making it easy for people who live, work and study here, from all backgrounds and abilities, to get more involved in the community. To find out about local opportunities and to register your interest, please take a look at the roles on this site or contact us by email: volunteering@valewisham.org.uk or you can call our volunteering hotline: 020 3778 0664.

We offer one-to-one advice appointments to anyone who is interested in volunteering. During these appointments we support individuals to search for volunteer roles that match their interests, motivations and time commitments.
