I Want to Volunteer

The voluntary action centre for the Forest of Dean

 As the Volunteer Centre for the Forest of Dean we are often the first point of contact for anyone that's interested in volunteering. Last year we were proud to support over 100,000 hours worth of volunteering in the area! 

FVAF promote and advertise a wide range of volunteering opportunities from organisations who share our ethos in supporting volunteers and recognising the wide array of reasons why people choose to volunteer.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering has a number of huge benefits, not only for you individually, but for your community and the world we live in. 

If you wish to enhance your CV, meet new people, put your skills to good use, learn something new, pursue an interest, offer experience or simply make a difference, we're guaranteed to have an opportunity for you!

You can find out about these opportunities in the following ways:

  • Search opportunities at Do-it.org

Voluntary Support

Since forming in 1994 we have developed a reputation for encouraging, embracing and enhancing community action throughout the Forest of Dean.


Many community groups within the Forest of Dean see FVAF as the first point of contact with regards to setting up new groups or activities. As a result we contributed significantly to the creation of 10 new groups throughout the year.


Never miss out on another volunteering opportunity in or around the Forest of Dean.
