GIFT’s twin objectives are to teach young people to GIVE and to help those in NEED.
Through GIFT, thousands of young people are being inspired to become GIVERS and to make a difference.
GIFT volunteers are helping almost 2000 people in need each week with food parcels and practical help including tutoring for their children, a helping hand after school, and visiting the elderly and infirm in hospitals and care homes.
GIFT run a food rescue programme – distributing over a tonne of fresh and dry food each week; we offer tailor-made Bnei Mitzvah projects and are active in schools across London, Manchester and Jerusalem, teaching and facilitating ‘giving’ and volunteering in a practical and real way.

JVN is the one stop shop for Jewish volunteering. We connect Jewish individuals to volunteering opportunities in the Jewish and non-Jewish community to suit their interests, skills, ability and availability and we help charities and community organizations find those volunteers best suited to fill their vacancies, through our advanced matching website, with more bespoke help also available.
In addition to this JVN promotes best practice in all matters volunteering throughout the Jewish community and beyond. We assist at community events that require large numbers of volunteers; provide advice and seminars for volunteer managers; and recognise the efforts of volunteers at our annual Jewish Volunteering Awards.
Think Volunteering Think JVN.

The League of Jewish Women is a long established charity founded in 1943. Our aims are to give service to the communities we live in, and to give hands-on help where there is a need, irrespective of ethnic grouping, gender or religion. We provide volunteer help in many diverse places such as schools, prisons, hospices and day centres.
We work with other organizations such as Macmillan nurses, Witness and Victim Support and Jewish Care. We are the UK affiliate of the International Council of Jewish Women and therefore have worldwide links, and are also affiliated to other national women’s organizations.
