Did you know that YouthNet is the charity behind Do-it? Together with our partners in volunteer centres and voluntary organisations across the country we make sure that those who want to volunteer can do so quickly and easily.
Every 45 seconds someone in the UK finds a volunteering opportunity thanks to Do-it. That means every year we're enabling hundreds of thousands of people to help out in their local communities up and down the country. Research shows that over 30% of these people wouldn't have started volunteering without Do-it.
But we can only continue to do this with the help of our supporters. To find out how you can get involved in keeping this vital service going please visit the YouthNet website. Supporting us allows local and national organisations throughout the UK to get on with doing their invaluable work, knowing that they have access to thousands of volunteers quickly and easily.
Nominet Best Practice Challenge 2008
On 9 July 2008, Do-it was named the winner of the Open Internet category of the Nominet Best Practice Challenge, at a ceremony held at the Science Museum.
Judges said that Do-it 'takes access to the Internet to another level and connects people who need help with people who want to help them.'
The majority of opportunities on Do-it come from local Volunteer Centres in England. These organisations have been provided with hardware, software and training so that they can upload their vacancies onto the do-it database. In addition, some national organisations post their opportunities directly on to Do-it. Read more about posting opportunities on Do-it.
If you have any problems with any of the opportunities that you find on Do-it then please contact the agency that supplied the data. This will be marked on each individual opportunity record and in the email you received if you registered and applied online.
If you have any other problems, then please contact us.
