New mobile phone app helps volunteers and opportunities to find each other

TimeBank has been working on a particularly innovative piece of work with SONY and Do-it to develop +U - a mobile phone application. 

It makes it easier to find one-off volunteer opportunities on the go by enabling potential volunteers to search opportunities, sign up to them, invite friends to join and check in - all from their mobile phone. You can read more about this new initiative here and download it onto an Android smart phone from here.

Organisations with one-off volunteering opportunities can make them available through the app by uploading them onto the Do-it website. For further information and support on how to do this contact

 A spokesperson for the Teenage Cancer Trust said: “At Teenage Cancer Trust we rely on the generosity and support of our volunteers to help raise both funds and awareness of our work in helping young people fight cancer. is a key resource in recruiting volunteers all over the UK and we think this new app will enable us to reach many more volunteers who can give their time to Teenage Cancer Trust.”
