Volunteering made easy

 Networking opportunities

We offer unique networking opportunities between public, private, voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations that aim to bridge the gap between sectors and develop collaborative and mutually beneficial working relationships.

PR opportunities

We attract local, regional and national attention through media coverage and our social media networks. Through York Cares, you can access award-winning volunteering programmes.


Our annual ‘Golden Moments’ Awards ceremony, presented by BBC Radio York broadcasters, provides an opportunity to thank employee-volunteers for their contribution to the city, and celebrate their worthwhile achievements.
