Volunteer Centre Dundee initially started as an information point, housed in the Central Library, back in 1997. Since that time the organisation has grown and gone from strength to strength, becoming constituted in 2003 and increasing in reach and numbers; we are now a staff team of 20 with our work supported by over 70 volunteers!
We have now reached a point where we need more space than our current premises affords, and as a result we will be relocating from Number Ten to Gateway West at the Technology Park. Whilst we are sad to be leaving a building that has been our home for many years, we are obviously excited at the prospect of all being together in the one office.
As part of this move, and a review of services, the partnership has taken the decision to close the ‘one stop shop’ premises at Number Ten. Going forward we will seek to being delivering information and support in communities and through a number of different approaches.
As part of this Volunteer Centre Dundee is currently seeking opportunities to connect with people, raise awareness of volunteering and enable people to pursue opportunities on an outreach basis and we are in the process of identifying suitable local premises across the city that will support a regular ‘pop up’ volunteer centre.
As a partner in the Dundee Third Sector Interface (TSI) we remain as dedicated to the partnership and providing support for the development and growth of the third sector as ever. We will continue to work closely with Dundee Voluntary Action and Dundee Social Enterprise Network as part of the TSI Voluntary Gateway to achieve our joint outcomes:
We will be in our new offices by 25 August 2016. You’ll still be able to reach us by phoning 01382 305705.
Volunteer Centre Dundee is a local charity committed to enabling volunteering in all its forms. Promoting over 300 different volunteer vacancies, we match hundreds of volunteers of all ages and all walks of life to rewarding ways of giving their time.
