Welcome to InterVol, a community volunteering charity in the United Kingdom that supports charities both in the UK and overseas through grant funding and annual volunteering programmes. InterVol supports students to develop their skills with community projects in the UK and then use them to support the work of charities overseas on health, education, refugee support, and conservation programmes.

As an InterVol volunteer you can make a long-term difference as we engage with local and overseas partners over years rather than on one-off projects. We recruit volunteers with skills and a passion for learning that can make a real impact to our partners. At InterVol we have a volunteer-led approach ensuring that all donations are used to fund our work and that there are no large fees to participate.

InterVol have been supporting students to connect with community-based charities at home and overseas since 2003 and are a registered charity in England & Wales, number 1136099. You can find out about our projects at a number of UK universities at the link above and get guidance on volunteering responsibly through our resources pages.


  • InterVol and Merazonia have teamed up for over ten years now. The efforts of InterVol volunteers have helped us to take care of, rehabilitate and release many Amazon animals, improve their enclosures and purchase medical equipment. To say it more eloquently: InterVol kicks ass!

    Being an InterVol volunteer was inspiring. It helped me develop myself as a person; widening my perspective and learning many new things. The experience was truly unforgettable, the memories will be carried forever.

  • Volunteering with InterVol is the best decision I made during my first year at university. I gained so much experience and understanding during my project which will improve my career prospects. Volunteering abroad allowed me to gain more independence and perseverance skills that I have already found are benefiting me.
