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

Toynbee Hall is so much more than a building. It is an organisation that throughout its 134 year history has always been a force for positive change, giving individuals, families and communities facing poverty and social injustice, practical help to take on those challenges and shape their own futures. Our work aims to bring people together, offer new opportunities and create a greater sense of community. We work with people young and old to help them find their voice and deliver their own projects.
