There is a very in-depth section on volunteering itself, with plenty of advice including advice on volunteering for the over 50s. This is the main area of the site, and can be found on the left-hand side. It proves useful to anyone who was considering volunteering and is still unaware of how to get started and what the process involves.
Of most use to would-be volunteers is the opportunity to find volunteering positions on the site. Organisations regularly post these openings, and this means that anyone who wants to volunteer will usually find something online on Volunteer Now.
