Volunteer Wessex covers Havant, East Hampshire and Winchester and has been set up by Community First.

It helps organisations find, recruit and support volunteers, but it also offers the same support and guidance to the potential volunteer.

Tom Belshaw, development manager for Community First, said: ‘We’re really proud to launch this new site, which is the result of lots of work behind the scenes with volunteers and local community groups.

The i newsletter cut through the noise

‘We know that there are lots of people who want to volunteer and plenty of willing helpers, but it’s getting the information in one easy to access place. The new site does this.

‘Volunteer Wessex helps groups to promote their activities and services locally and it gives volunteers more control of the information they want to share by creating a sort of online volunteering CV.’
