Overview

The Volunteer Centre serves primarily to foster and develop volunteerism in the community as a whole as well as support small and medium sized voluntary organisation in their operation. In general it will support 4 main areas: the promotion of volunteerism, capacity building for effective local volunteering, provide leadership on issues relating to volunteerism, support networking between Voluntary Organisations (VOs) and connect people, and serve as a base from which small and medium VOs can operate.

In addition to housing the offices of the MCVS, the Volunteer Centre is aimed to support Voluntary Organisations (VO). This is done by providing both space and facilities from which such organisations can operate. There are presently 2 Volunteer Centres, 1 in the centre of the island (Valletta) and 1 in the north (Qawra).
