Volunteer

Volunteers enhance the work undertaken by our charity, helping us to achieve better outcomes for the children, young people and their families that we aim to help.

Our volunteers receive an indepth induction, training appropriate to their role and ongoing support and development to ensure their volunteering is a positive experience.

Why volunteer?

  • To ‘give something back’
  • To use your skills, knowledge and experience.
  • Volunteering is a chance to gain new skills, provide valuable work experience and explore potential career options
  • To increase employability
  • To make a difference to the lives of others

Make a difference – every person counts!

We currently have opportunities at our office base in Middlesbrough and are hapy to talk over what this may involve.

For further information, or to request a volunteer application pack please contact us:
