Flexible / Micro


Flexible, Short Term, and Micro Volunteering all refer to the same type of opportunities. These roles are either one-offs, take a short amount of time (a few hours), or potentially can be done at home. Examples of these opportunities include weeding a garden, shaking collection buckets, helping with a mailshot or labelling prizes for a raffle.


This type of volunteering is a great way to make a difference in a short amount of time. If you want to volunteer but don’t feel able to commit to much time, then this is a great place to start.


Below we have a number of recently added volunteer opportunities. However, there are many more out there. Why not follow us on social media or sign up to our newsletter to get new roles straight to your inbox.
