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.


Last year more than 400 volunteers brought their expertise, time and dedication to Toynbee Hall, contributing 24,845 hours of voluntary activity.

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.
