About Us
ivo is a platform that connects people that work with volunteers, social action and civil society projects.

ivo is free to join and we promise that we will never share your data with third parties.

ivo launched in 2012 following a pilot site, i-volunteer, which ran for 18 months. Since 2012 the platform has connected people that work in the volunteering sector, providing networking tools along with facilities to recruit volunteers and paid staff. In a short time ivo became the leading social site for volunteering, with over 10,000 members and 25,000 monthly visitors.

In 2013 the team behind ivo made a bid to take over Do-it.org.uk, the UK's national volunteering website, from the charity YouthNet. Our successful bid, combined with funding from the Cabinet Office, enabled us to take ownership of Do-it in December of that year and since then we've been busy redeveloping the service which went live in January 2015.

ivo has since evolved into a professional networking space. We host one of the largest global networks of volunteering leaders and our intention is to build on this to make it even easier for volunteer leaders to connect, learn and share.

ivo is owned by Do-it Trust, a registered UK charity (number 1117891).
