How much time do I have to give as a volunteer? There are a range of varied and flexible volunteering opportunities, so you’ll be able to find something that fits into your schedule. You can give as much or as little time as you like. Some organisations will ask for a large time commitment, such as a couple of days training, and then set hours each week. Other organisations are more flexible and are happy to work around the time you can give. There are also one-off opportunities that require a day or so of your time.
