Join over 800 organisations across Warwickshire on Warwickshire CAVA’s Volunteer Connect service

Volunteer Connect

Simply Connect is an online brokerage service accessible via Warwickshire CAVA’s new website. It is an automated matching service that offers a fast and free route to recruiting volunteers.

Why it is different?

Simply Connect offers individuals interested in volunteering the opportunity to join a volunteer bank. For every role you upload, Simply Connect will automatically search the volunteer bank for individuals interested in the type of volunteering role you are promoting. Organisations can view volunteer profiles and contact individuals. This means a faster, more streamlined matching service – at your fingertips.

Once registered, organisations can input and manage their own profile and roles, or ask Warwickshire CAVA to do it. Additionally, organisations can benefit from a wide variety of support – visit the ‘volunteering for organisations’ page for more information
