Volunteering social networking website launched

ivo, a new social networking website, which claims to provide the first-ever national listing of charity volunteers, has being launched.

VCS organisations can search the website, which is designed to match people with community projects relating to their interests, for volunteers by skills and location. The website, which has been launched following the success of the 18-month i-volunteer pilot, also provides a forum where people can share their interests and experiences using blogs and videos.

To access the free website, run by Red Trust, a charity which promotes social action and volunteering through new technology, visit http://ivo.org.
