Volunteer to Help

Try new things, meet new people and make a difference today

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

You’ll get more out than you put in

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! Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity in the local town hall, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread a group of very hungry eleven year olds – no two meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

    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 tea makers, tidy-uppers and skill sharers. We’re talking about mini bus drivers and first aiders. 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.

    All our activities are run by volunteers, who might join us because they want to try something new, make friends, spend time with their children or learn new life skills and experiences.
    Do you want to do something good for your community and help our Young People keep their bodies and brains active and happy – whether that’s by scaling mountains, sharing skills or serving tea.
