Find an opportunity that’s right for you and be the difference in your community

Ways to find opportunities

Are you looking to volunteer or know someone who is?

HVA, RVA, and 3VA are working with the Tribe project to help make finding a voluntary role in East Sussex easier.

Tribe is a free app and website, which connects people interested in volunteering with local volunteering opportunities and take part in a way that suits their lifestyle, location, experience and skill.

There are a range of volunteering opportunities available, and these are being updated all the time – so hopefully you will find something to suit you.

As many volunteer involving organisations use their own websites for recruitment, you could also try searching the internet using the organisation name or your interests as key words.

If you need further information, advice or support to find volunteering in one of these areas, please contact one of our local partners:

Others ideas to find opportunities

You could also:

  • Contact your local village hall, community centre or information centre to find out what’s going on locally where volunteers might be involved.
  • Keep an eye on your local paper for volunteering-related events and contact the organisers to see if you can join in as a volunteer.
  • Think about what you’d really like to do as a volunteer and approach an organisation in your area of interest to see if you can create that role for yourself!

If you’re helping someone with additional support needs to find a volunteering opportunity, please read our Advice for Support Workers.
