Volunteering - V.I.P

VIP logo

Everyone is a V.I.P in our book.

Volunteering is a really important part of our organisation, a chance to help us in supporting young people and for you to develop new and existing skills and meet new people. Volunteers have so much to offer and so much to gain. 

If you're interested in volunteering for us check out our current vacancies below.  Sometimes we advertise very specific roles but if you're flexible about your time, or can't see the right role for you, you can apply to be part of our Volunteer Pool and we'll get in touch when we need help.
