Welcome to our brand-new section for online volunteering opportunities. This page has been created owing to the demand from students for opportunities that can be done remotely. You can volunteer directly from your sofa! All you need is a laptop or smartphone.  


Most opportunities advertised on this page are national or international campaigns; however, if you'd like to support your local community with some more active, in-person volunteering then please check out the VTeam website to see all our currrent projects and opportunities. Alternatively you can email us at
