The Centre for Volunteering’s Volunteer Referral Service (VRS) provides a platform for members to advertise for volunteers.

The VRS is a very popular member benefit of The Centre.  It assists our member organisations with the time consuming task of recruiting appropriate volunteers to meet their needs.

The main function of the VRS is to assist your organisation to find suitable, high-quality volunteers. We will work with you to provide a detailed role description for us to advertise on your behalf.

Roles are advertised on our website – both special event volunteer and skilled volunteer roles are promoted.  We also promote roles through the online volunteering portal  and through our Skilled Volunteer Weekly Updates by email and social media.

We will conduct preliminary screenings of  potential candidates and refer suitable volunteers to your organisation for your consideration.

The VRS works closely with you to better understand and meet your needs and find you the most appropriate volunteer for your organisation.

If you would like to take advantage of this service you can sign up for membership online.  If you would like more information about membership please complete the Membership Enquiry Form and we will get back to you or email us at
