Our Services

Let Us Help You Find The Perfect Volunteering!


HVC knows that volunteering is a journey and people join that journey at very different stages of their life cycle and for very different reasons.

That is why we have tailored our services to ensure that you, the person looking to volunteer receives a person-centred and holistic approach that puts your wishes at the very core.

We know that volunteering, for some, is a giant leap and for others they know exactly what they want to do and that’s why each person is treated as an individual and spoken with on a 1-2-1 basis.

Our role is to find you exactly what you are looking for, even if you don’t quite know just yet what that is. Please give us a call on 01708 922 214 or email volunteering@haveringvc.org.uk and let us support you in taking those first few steps.

Check in & Chat Telephone Befriending Service

The Check-in & Chat service was born out of a need for free social interaction during the lockdown stages of the pandemic. Those who usually sought their social interactions via their local shop, pharmacist or GP could no longer venture out due to government restrictions and therefore plummeted into isolation.

What was and is still unique about the service HVC offers is that there is no criteria, you don’t have to be over a certain age or from a certain background because loneliness and isolation isn’t prejudice, it can affect anyone at any point in their lifetime.

 If you or somebody you know would like to access this service or volunteer your time then please call 01708 922 214 or email volunteering@haveringvc.org.uk
