Community Service Volunteers (CSV) in the City of London​

CSV​ has many volunteering opportunities within the Square Mile to suit even the busiest diary: from ad hoc or one-off to once a week. For instance:

Befriending: we’ll put you in touch with an interesting, delightful or rewarding individual who is housebound and/or isolated. Some are looking for company and others would like help with shopping.

Mobile IT Tutor: we will equip you with a laptop and mobile internet connection so you can visit someone in their home, give them a simple computer lesson or spend time surfing the net with them. You could also contribute by donating your old or unused laptop

Occasional DIY: if you have basic DIY skills and are happy to help people who can no longer do things like fix hinges, drill holes, change light bulbs, we can put you in touch.

Other opportunities include

  • Running and assisting in community classes and activities
  • Reading activities with children
  • Library volunteering work
  • Support workers at City Community Centres
  • Youth volunteering opportunities during the Summer

Bespoke volunteering opportunities are available and created where a volunteer is looking for a particular role or if a person wishes to set up a new volunteering project or opportunity.
