About

The concept of the UK-based Jewish Volunteering Network, JVN, started when one of the founding members decided she had spare time on her hands and would like to volunteer but did not know where to start. It occurred to her how much easier it would be to have a portal where all Jewish charities could promote their vacancies. Since it’s inception JVN has grown into a source of information for charities and volunteers alike and actively promotes volunteering in the Jewish community.

The Jewish Volunteering Network is a national charity connecting people across the community. We work across the voluntary, public and private sectors to raise the profile of volunteering within the Jewish community. Our highly developed website helps volunteers find suitable opportunities and our telephone helpline offers a bespoke matching service for specific projects. Whether you choose to give one hour a week to a local organisation, one month contributing to a national campaign or go volunteering abroad, JVN matches volunteers with the right opportunities to fit their interests and skills. We are proud to have hundreds of charities in our network offering roles as varied as delivering meals, putting on pantomimes, making food parcels, writing websites as well as administration, hands on social welfare projects and fundraising. Our aims are to:

  • Bring volunteers and volunteering opportunities together
  • Support charitable organisations who serve the Jewish community
  • Develop corporate responsibility programmes in the business community
  • Do something great today…. become a volunteer!
