Do-it v VK online noticeboard – which opportunities go where?
It comes down to a few factors, but overall the opportunities on Do-it are with organisations that have a clear volunteer policy in place, or are working towards having one in the next twelve months. This means we know they offer support and supervision for volunteers.
Our local noticeboard ones are often opportunities with small groups of volunteers. We also publicise one-off opportunities here or things that are urgent.
