Every week, our volunteers empower young people to learn new skills, make new friends and stand on their own two feet. They shape young people’s lives for the better, and find out a whole lot about themselves too.

There are lots of ways you can get involved as a parent, from helping out occasionally on a parent rota to volunteering your time as a leader. Our volunteering opportunities are as varied as you! Because whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread for a group of very hungry eleven year olds – no two meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

If you are interested in finding out more or would like to join our team please fill out the form or if you prefer to email us directly then contact us using the contacts above.  We will get back to you shortly.  You won’t regret it!
