Volunteer with Action for Children
Change lives. Yours too!
Volunteer with Action for Children to make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable young people and children, and your own too!
As well as being a really valuable way to support some of the UK's most vulnerable children, young people, and families, volunteering is a great way to get involved in your local community. Volunteering with us can also bring some great benefits for you. You could learn new skills, improve your CV, build your confidence and meet new people. It's also great fun too!
“It is very sociable and great to meet lots of new people”
We have lots of different opportunities for you to get involved with.
You could help little ones learn about the world through play activities. You can help mentor a young person who has little contact with their family or support parents and carers who are struggling to cope. We also welcome volunteers for valuable support roles, such as driving disabled young people to activities, or assisting with administration. You may also like to get involved in events, and help us to raise the funds that make the work we do possible.
“I normally go home with the buzz of having done something useful with my time”

“Since I became a volunteer, I feel like a different person. I have developed new skills such as how to interact with new people and my confidence has improved. Volunteering here has even given me new ideas about parenting my own child"
