Informal volunteering and social action
Get involved in your community! There are so many ways to take part, enriching your life and the lives of others. On this page you’ll find lots of ideas for informal volunteering.
You can search our directories by name, topic, beneficiaries, postcode and ward. Once you’ve found some local groups that match your area of interest you can get in touch.
Find a local street party or community festival. You can volunteer to help out, or join the organising committee.
Or why not organise one yourself – we have lots of advice and information on how to do it.
Social Prescribing is the new buzz word for improving the health and well-being of people by linking them into non-clinical services, particularly services offered by voluntary and community groups. Community Links volunteers in Camden help local people find and connect with those services. You can find out more about about becoming a volunteer or social prescribing on our website.
at your local community centre with Recommend Me.
you can find lots of resources on the Campaigning Central website. Or try the international youth focussed campaign website dosomething.org. There are lots of local campaigns to get involved in – from supporting comprehensive education, to improving air quality, from supporting libraries to campaigning on body image. Have a look on our directory of local organisations, or search twitter, Meetup and local noticeboards to find out about local campaigns.
