Welcome to Action Together’s Volunteer Centre

We offer support, information and guidance to Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside residents on a wide range of volunteering opportunities.

We are a volunteer brokerage service that helps organisations in Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside find volunteers. You can find local volunteering opportunities from hundreds of organisations on this page.


People all across Oldham, Rochdale and Tameside give their time freely to help others and make their communities a better place. In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, that support is needed even more, and lots of people want to find ways they can help. You can register for formal volunteering on this page.

There are a number of ways you can help as an individual:


You do not need to register with Action Together if you are interested in local community volunteering, such as shopping for a neighbour.

Visit our Mutual Aid page for advice and information on setting up and volunteering for a mutual aid group: https://www.actiontogether.org.uk/mutual-aid

You can also help local charities to help others by making a donation. Action Together is raising money for the emergency community response to coronavirus. Make a donation at https://www.actiontogether.org.uk/donate


We are working with local councils, local charities, voluntary and community groups planning ahead for the needs of communities over the coming weeks and months.

We encourage you to register your interest in the form below and as the need for more volunteers grows we will be in touch with you to match you with an opportunity to help.

If you are a group looking for volunteers, information or advice please visit our coronavirus page: https://www.actiontogether.org.uk/covid-19

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently under increased demand for voluntary services and will contact you as soon as we have an appropriate volunteering opportunity available. You do not need to contact us for updates as we will contact you. You do not need to register if you are interested in local community volunteering/mutual aid (eg shopping for a neighbour).

For non-Coronavirus response volunteering opportunities:

Please search volunteer opportunities below. Alternatively telephone us on 0161 339 2345 for a chat and to make a confidential, informal appointment with one of our advisors.
