About Us

Hands On London logo

We are Hands On London

We started in 2010, working as an intermediary between not-for-profits, charities and community groups and volunteers like you. We also offer opportunities for corporate volunteering and have a growing network of charity partners which allows us to bring diverse and flexible opportunities across Greater London into one place so it’s easy to choose what you do.

Our volunteers support charities with their on-going work and also provide help to create new projects for these charities. Inspired by New York Cares, we work closely with Hands On Network, the global umbrella organisation.
