Our volunteers perform a wide variety of roles. We think we have an opportunity for everyone.
We are operating within government guidelines in response to COVID-19.
Volunteers supporting the charity are not currently participating in any active duties beyond those we feel as an organisation we can support safely.
Applications will only be shortlisted for roles that can be carried out safely and have the necessary support available. Your details will be kept, and we will contact you when we begin to process volunteer applications again to understand if you are still interested in supporting us within the role you applied for.
Your interest in volunteering and patience during this time is appreciated.
Greet participants and help at our events, or join the miles of smiles in one of our cheer teams.
Deliver talks about the charity and help us raise awareness at schools and community groups.

Help generate new income in your area by getting involved in regular bucket collections.
