I Want to Volunteer

Make a difference. Make things happen. Get involved.

We believe in the power of people to change the world around them and the huge impact that they can have on the lives of others. Volunteering gives us the chance to make a difference and create a better life for others. It also offers the perfect opportunity for us to learn new skills, make new friends and experience new things.

Crucially volunteering can be a life-enhancing experience for both the volunteer and those being helped. This is the place to explore the diverse and exciting world of volunteering; to search for opportunities and hear real-life stories about what makes being a volunteer so great. We hope you’re inspired. Life is short – do stuff that matters!
