Voluntary Work

Volunteering can be one of the most fulfilling things you can do with your time. As well as making a real difference to the organisation you are helping, you can build your skills, meet new friends and open your eyes to a whole new world.



Glamorgan Voluntary Services (GVS) is an independent charity and has a flourishing membership of voluntary and community organisations active in the Vale of Glamorgan.  We help to improve the quality of life of people and communities by supporting volunteers, volunteering opportunities and voluntary groups.  


We deliver an array of quality services to meet the needs of voluntary groups.  We are a one stop shop for the voluntary sector.   We champion best practice throughout voluntary organisations so that they excel in delivering their aims and objectives.

We can help your voluntary group with a number of free and low cost services, some of which include:  

  • Free funding searches and advice
  • Free assistance with developing policies, procedures and constitutions
  • Low cost professional printing
  • Design service including leaflets etc.
  • Free advertising in our magazine, on our website and in our e-bulletins
  • Low cost and free training
  • Participation in joint working with statutory and other agencies

Our role is also to provide information, advice and guidance on all aspects of volunteering for both volunteers and recruiting organisations. We can recruit volunteers for you if you are a voluntary or community group, social enterprise, CIC or a registered charity.
