Changing your details

Change your account or profile details

If you are logged in, you can change your user name, password, and email preferences in your basic account settings. If you have a volunteer or organisation profile, you can edit these from Manage account as well.

From anywhere in your dashboard, click Manage account (1)


Basic account details

Go to Basic account details (2) to change your user name, email address or password.

You will need to re-enter your current password (3) if you want to change either your email address (4) or password (5). Hit the Save button to save any changes.

Managing your profile and preferences

If you have a volunteer or organisation profile, it will be listed (6) under Manage account.


Volunteers can set their availability. If you update your profile to Not available you will no longer appear in search results and other users won’t be able to see your profile.

Email preferences

All of our users agree to receive certain service emails as a condition of using the service. These include notifications of messages received through the system, reminders about your profile and opportunities and very occasional service updates.

You can sign up or unsubscribe from our newsletter (7).

Volunteers can also receive email suggestions for opportunities that may be of interest to them. If you’d prefer not to receive them, you can subscribe (7).

You can also view any saved searches and email alerts from that page on your dashboard (8).
