Become a Volunteer

Share your skills, gain new ones

Our volunteers are our everyday heroes!

Whatever your skillset, lend a hand for as little or as much time as you can spare, and we promise you’ll get more out than you put in.  Our volunteering opportunities are as varied as you!

If you’re aged 18+ have a look at our opportunities below and see what interests you – or feel free to contact us at

If you’re aged 14-18 and would like to get involved as a Young Leader please contact us at for more information.

Make a difference, volunteer today

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to join us. Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about students who want to boost their CV, and parents who volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family.

We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life. Sounds fun? Worthwhile? It is…
