People with limited time

In today’s fast-paced world, people are increasingly looking for flexible volunteering options that fit in with their busy lifestyles


Online volunteers contribute to their community or a cause they care about via the internet. Many people prefer to use technology to volunteer as it gives them the flexibility to volunteer anywhere at any time. It also helps to overcome some of the barriers to volunteering such as lack of time, transport and disability.

Volunteering online allows people to use small amounts of spare time effectively. It also gives people the opportunity to get involved with a cause or issue when there are no suitable volunteer options where they live.
