A website for the Volunteer Centre Edinburgh has been developed by Edinburgh digital consultancy Civic.

The website aims to become an essential hub of information which will allow those in Edinburgh who want to want access to over 600 volunteering opportunities which are advertised in Edinburgh at the one time.

It is hoped that this will be achieved through an increase of engagement with the public using digital media streaming and interactive featured, with the website featuring good practice guides, case studies and resources which Volunteer Centre Edinburgh hopes will peek the interests of people from across differing sectors.

Paul Wilson, depute director of Volunteer Centre Edinburgh, explained; “People volunteer for a huge variety of reasons and many learn new valuable skills in return for giving their time and energy to volunteering. Since the recession we have see even more people come forward to volunteer, who are keen to develop personally and professionally whilst using their time to help out in their community.”

Greig Tosh, managing director of Civic, added; “People are at the heart of Volunteer Centre Edinburgh so we’ve designed a site that brings members together through sharing, social media and the YouTube channel. We also enabled commenting on news stories to facilitate conversation with users.”
