Creating lasting change through volunteering
We bring about change not by sending aid, but by working through volunteers and partners to empower communities in some of the world’s poorest regions.
We have experience working in 60 countries.
We have worked with over 80,000 volunteers.
We have supported over 50,000,000 people worldwide.
We're adapting our work to respond to the most pressing needs.
The coronavirus pandemic has prompted a rush of volunteers - it's an inspiring moment, and a reminder of the benefits and lasting power of volunteering.
We believe progress is only possible when we work together. Join us to create lasting change through volunteering.
VSO partners with many organisations across funding, policy, research, sourcing and programme delivery.
