Haverhill Volunteer Centre is a local voluntary organisation that exists to promote and support volunteering in Haverhill and the surrounding areas. HVC actively recruits volunteers from all sections of the community, and places them with local voluntary organisations who are seeking volunteers to help with their work.
The Volunteer Centre offers many services including:
• Volunteering opportunities

Haverhill and District Volunteer Centre was established in 1988. It is financially supported by grant aid by Suffolk County Council, St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Haverhill Town Council.
We are one of a large and growing number of similar organisations and we are affiliated to Volunteering Development England.
The Volunteer Centre is manned by a Co-ordinator and an Administrator. It is accountable to a Management Committee drawn from the local community and statutory bodies.
We work in partnership with:
• Statutory bodies
• Grant giving organisations
• Voluntary organisations
• Community Groups
• Private sector
We aim to develop and enhance voluntary opportunities and activities throughout the community.
Haverhill Volunteer Centre is a registered charity and is governed according to the regulations and guidelines laid down by the Charity Commission.
We are committed to ensuring that no volunteer, staff member, organisation or individual to whom we provide services will be discriminated against in any way.
