Toynbee Hall was founded on the principles of volunteering, and we have been proudly placing volunteers at the heart of our work for the past 130 years. All of our frontline services rely on volunteers – we really could not provide access to support and advice services without them.

Volunteer Open Day

We have some exciting volunteering opportunities in our Research and Heritage teams coming up so we're holding a Volunteer Open Day on Saturday 3rd March to tell you all about the roles, our work and how you can get involved. If you're interested in volunteering, come along.

Henna is one of our current Heritage Volunteers. She has written this blog about her experience volunteering in our Heritage team.

Could you be our next volunteer?

With roles as varied as trustees, fundraisers, researchers, administrators and direct service provision, we may have a role for you.

Whatever you are looking for, join our team and we can help you meet your personal goals, develop new skills and give back to the local community.

Corporate volunteering

Over the years Toynbee Hall has greatly benefited from our Corporate Volunteering partnerships. The skills and expertise of the organisations we work with have made a real difference to the lives of the people in our community. Many of the companies we partner with also generously provide funding to support our work.

In return, Toynbee Hall can offer bespoke opportunities to meet your corporate social responsibility objectives. We do a wide range of work at Toynbee Hall, so we have a correspondingly wide range of ways for corporate volunteers to get involved.
