For Organisations

Volunteer Edinburgh holds a database of volunteering opportunities. To advertise your organisation’s opportunities your organisation must meet their minimum standards and then register with them.

Volunteer Edinburgh advertise opportunities that are based in Edinburgh. If your opportunities take place outside Edinburgh or across a wider area please go to volunteerscotland.net.

Get On Board Edinburgh reserve the right not to promote an opportunity if we believe it does not comply with legal requirements, good practice or volunteer Edinburgh’s minimum standards. You can read more about Volunteer Edinburgh’s Terms of Service here.

Information provided by you on being a trustee or related to a volunteering opportunity may feature in one or more of our newsletters and may be shared via social media channels operated by one or more of the organisations comprising the Edinburgh TSI.

We may also use your information anonymously to produce reports for funders and the general public about our activities and to promote and develop volunteering.

For members of the Public and Volunteers

We cannot be held liable for the accuracy of the information provided by third party organisations. We also can’t be held liable for the service you receive from third party organisations, nor for your volunteering experience with them.
