Volunteer role descriptions

We offer over 80 different volunteering opportunities and each one plays an important part in our charity.

Whether you can spare lots of time, a little time or something in-between, there's a volunteer role for you. Some volunteering opportunities require full time commitment whilst others need no commitment at all - just help us when you can!

Some of our roles require an enhanced level disclosure check to be completed (or PVG in Scotland). These checks form part of our safer recruitment practices, and are required for staff or volunteers working with vulnerable groups in certain roles.
