Why we need you

If you’re interested in volunteering with people and dogs, and enjoy organising events, this could be the role for you. 

We need more volunteer Fundraising Group Coordinators who can help lead a team of volunteer Fundraisers in their local area. Or, if you want to build your confidence and support a Fundraising Group Coordinator on their way to success our Deputy role could be perfect for you.

  • You’ll also get to meet incredible dogs – from puppies and guide dogs in training to qualified guide dogs working in partnerships.
  • You’ll visit new places and enjoy fun days out with your team.
  • You can share your existing skills and develop new skills as we’ll also provide all the training you need for the role.
  • You’ll have a dedicated volunteer manager and a team of volunteers who will help support you throughout your role.
  • Volunteering should never leave you out of pocket. We pay reasonable expenses related to your volunteering with us, including travel costs.
