The Volunteers Collective is a portal that connects volunteers with volunteering opportunities in the West Midlands.

Connecting People

The Volunteers Collective promotes and connects volunteers with volunteering opportunities in the West Midlands. Designed to work with major events, regional organisations, local charities, and sports clubs, the Volunteers Collective connects budding West Midlands’ volunteers with areas of genuine need within the region.

Commonwealth Collective

The platform is currently open to former Birmingham 2022 volunteers, and they can use the platform to sign up and hear about volunteering opportunities from one-off events to regular volunteering openings within their community, Birmingham, and the West Midlands.
Whether it’s volunteering within sports, arts, culture, community, local charities, or something entirely different this is your chance to be a part of Birmingham’s 2022 legacy!

We launched the Volunteers Collective on June 7th 2023, hear from the amazing Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Volunteers on their experiences!
