The platform for doing good. Together.

Volunteer Makers is a community of volunteers and organisations
coming together to bring the best out of each other and
make the extraordinary happen.

It is a social network for volunteers and a powerful volunteer management
tool rolled into one, with the aim of transforming what volunteering means
for organisations and the people who support them.


A platform. A model. A vision

Volunteer Makers is a new model for volunteering, supported by a powerful, user-friendly online platform.

  • A new model

    Supported by digital technology, Volunteer Makers is a strategy to help engage, manage and grow your volunteer base to increase the support you get from your volunteers and their engagement with your organisation

  • A digital platform

    Volunteer Makers is supported by a challenge database, automatically matching volunteer opportunities with skills, allowing volunteers to fit their capacity to your needs. The system works closely with social platforms to actively increase engagement and interactions

  • A vision

    The Volunteer Makers approach can enhance the experience of volunteering, and it has proven highly effective – even transformational – for organisations using it

What you are saying about the Volunteer Makers model

“It was extremely useful to put together this plan and we are already recruiting and engaging with volunteers according to our new plan.”

“It was such a useful and helpful session, and many things were clarified in my own mind. Amazing to see how unified we all were on vision etc. too! Your programme offers such a great opportunity to think about and soon to implement and develop.”

“Thanking you for your fascinating workshop on Monday – we have been giving it considerable thought. As you say, as a volunteer-led and run Museum how we will use the Volunteer Makers Model needs some thought. One thing is certain in that we need to grow our volunteering base and stimulate interest in the Museum and visitor numbers. The notion of giving a minute of your time might be a good one to start on.”

“We have always valued the support and advice that we have had from you. We are also very aware that our volunteers are the heart of the museum and that their success, as recognised by the shortlisting in the Museums and Heritage Awards, is very well deserved.”
