Discovery (charity no. 256146) is a volunteer-led organisation. We aim to enrich the lives of people in Swansea through volunteering. 

Discovery is a registered charity that has been established since 1966. We currently have around 600 volunteers busy getting involved in over 30 voluntary projects all over the city! Our organisation envisages a community where people are treated as equals and are not discriminated against or disadvantaged by society.

Discovery focuses on providing the best possible service to the people we work within Swansea so we need skilled, trained & enthusiastic volunteers.

DISCOVERY aims to:

  • Enrich the lives of people in Swansea in order to fulfil their potential as empowered individuals and as members of groups and communities.
  • Offer new experiences and opportunities through a broad range of student-led activities in the community leading to increased mutual understanding and equality.
  • Actively support students to be aware of their personal development and the impact on themselves and the lives of others through their involvement in community-based activities.

All our volunteers need to attend mandatory ‘Start Here’ training & complete an Enhanced DBS check with us before volunteering.  Volunteers can also attend additional training.
