The Volunteer Network is the operational name of Somerset Youth Volunteering Network.
We are an independent charity that only survives by fundraising for every penny we use to support our young people. Each year young people, staff and charity supporters spend months raising the money that last year we spent on giving 3,400 young people the opportunities to become positive members of their local communities. Along the way we helped 2500 young volunteers 560 adult volunteers and 120 charities and groups to work more positively with young people.
