I'm planning on taking early retirement next year. Where do I start to look if I want to do some volunteering?

The Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) might be a good one to take a look at.

The RVS volunteers provide support to older people, but if you are just about to retire you'll have plenty of years left to be younger than the "older people".

Another one definately worth taking a look at is GVI:  https://www.gvi.co.uk/

They organise volunteering programmes across the world. Not specifically for retired / semi-retired people, but certainly including that age group. Projects include marine conservation, wildlife conservation and loads more.

 

Do take a look.

A really great place to start is Do It:  https://do-it.org/.   They have a database of volunteering opportunities UK wide.
