Award-winning volunteer placement organisation people and places works with volunteers to match their skills and experience to local community needs. We offer a service of integrity to thinking people – people who want to share their skills and experience to make a real difference, as well as to know where and how their money is spent. To work effectively for widely varied local projects, we work in full and open partnership with local people who are in and of their communities and truly understand the needs. We are working in 12 countries with dozens of projects. Responsible volunteering cannot and should not replace the traditional holiday – it may be emotionally exhausting and mentally challenging, but can also be a profound and life-enhancing experience when volunteers are well-prepared, well-matched and well-supported.
