Volunteer Now, the lead organisation for promoting and supporting volunteering across Northern Ireland, is urging people in Belfast to get into volunteering and find their perfect match through its brand new online search portal.

Supported by Minister for Communities, Deirdre Hargey, the online platform is based on new technology and is the first of its kind to be adopted in Northern Ireland, making it easier than ever to find volunteering opportunities.

Boasting hundreds of unique volunteering opportunities across a range of sectors, volunteers can ‘find their fit’. From treading the boards at a local theatre, to caring for guide dog puppies, to helping some of the most vulnerable members of society, the Volunteer Now platform searches and finds locally based volunteering opportunities matched specifically to the volunteer’s skills and interests.
