Whether you’re interested in helping us cheer on supporters in a marathon, tidying up our House gardens, or preparing home cooked food for families, we always appreciate the contribution our volunteers make to our charity.

You can volunteer as an individual, with your workplace, or as part of a community group, and for as much or little time as you can spare, at our Houses across the UK. Volunteering is a great way to use your skills and meet new people, while making a difference to families staying with us in our Houses.  

Individual and Community volunteering

Opportunities for individuals and groups

There are lots of ways you can get involved as an individual or with a community group. We have a wide range of exciting opportunities available, including helping on reception in one of our Houses, maintenance, gardening, cooking for our families, or pitching in to help organise one of our events.

So whether you're a group of green-fingered gardeners, an enthusiastic events organiser or a keen chef, we'd love to hear from you. Just fill in the form below and we'll be in touch.
