Volunteering info

The Jewish Volunteering Network has revamped its website to cope with increasing demand.

JVN says the online facelift will make it easier for people wishing to do voluntary work to find suitable openings with a charity.

They will now be able to locate opportunities closer to their home, for example.

"A couple of years ago, we had 500-700 visits a week to our website," said JVN director Leonie Lewis.

"Now we're up to 1,200 a week."
