Volunteering Opportunities

Share your skills, gain new ones

Ever needed an extra pair of hands?

Well, so do we! Want the chance to go canoeing, climbing, or camping? Then why not come and have a go and lend us your hands. We need support in running our sessions whether that’s canoeing or a games night.


All you need is enthusiasm, empathy and a good sense of humour. Everything else we can teach you.

Make a difference, volunteer today

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to join us. Our door is open to people of all ages, genders, races and backgrounds, and we’re only able to change lives because people like you lend a hand. We’re talking about students who want to boost their CV, and parents who volunteer so they can spend more time together as a family.

We provide the training. You show up, get stuck in, and make memories for life. Sounds fun? Worthwhile? It is…
