As different types of organisations can post their volunteering opportunities onto Do-it in different ways, it is important that you choose the option that is most suitable for your organisation.
The information below will help you decide which way to post your volunteering opportunities onto Do-it. For further guidance, please use our flow chart, which through a series of questions can guide you to choosing the right way for your organisation to post your opportunities on Do-it.
National and regional organisations
If you are operating and recruiting volunteers in two counties or more or throughout the UK, you can apply for an Do-it Recruiter account to enable you to manage your volunteering opportunities and upload them to Do-it.
We can only accept applications from the head office of a national or regional organisation. If you are a branch of a national organisation please ask your head office to apply.
Find out more about the Do-it Recruiter, including prices and how to apply.
Alternatively, organisations could decide to buy V-Base, our volunteering management software that also enables easy uploading to Do-it. If you’re unsure about which system suits you best contact us and we’ll be able to talk through which option would suit you.
Local branches of national organisations
Local branches of national organisations should either contact their local Volunteer Centre or ask their head office to apply for a Do-it Recruiter account. A branch can then be given their own login to post volunteering opportunities.
Local organisations in England
Local organisations, recruiting volunteers in a specific geographic area, should get in touch with their local Volunteer Centre (VC) who will post opportunities on their behalf.
Do-it works in partnership with the Volunteer Centre Network within England, which uses V-Base, YouthNet’s Volunteering Management software, to post opportunities online. To find your nearest VC, enter your postcode in the VC finder.
If there is no VC in your local area you can consider applying for an Do-it Recruiter or V-Base account
Local organisations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
Most Volunteer Centres outside England don’t upload opportunities to Do-it. Organisations from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland who want their opportunities on Do-it should register with their local VC, you can find your nearest VC by using our VC finder. You can also apply for a Do-it Recruiter account. This enables organisations to reach more potential volunteers online.
Only opportunities with a UK postcode can be uploaded to the Do-it volunteering database. Organisations offering opportunities overseas should contact us if they want to be listed in our overseas section. We only list organisations that are UK based charities.
