Who we are

Volunteer Cornwall is a charity (Registered Number 1069957) and a company limited by guarantee (Company number 3562830) which develops individuals and communities through voluntary action.

Objectives and Activities of the Charity

We are a charity dedicated to building social capital and developing the wellbeing of individuals and communities in Cornwall. We do this by working in collaboration with a wide range of organisations to promote and support active citizenship and voluntary action covering the emotional, social, environmental and economic needs and opportunities in Cornwall.

From our Head Office in Truro, and our sub-offices in Liskeard and Redruth, we provide support to all aspects of volunteering across the county. As you explore our website, you will see the range of projects and services we are involved in.


We have explored and defined out a set of values which we developed with our staff and stakeholders:

To be bold and passionate. To work reciprocally with collective purpose promoting neighbourliness.

We relate these to our daily work by being enabling, creating opportunity, innovating, providing proactive leadership and being inclusive.
