How do I become a volunteer?

Our volunteers run 120 shops, organise 300 local fundraising branches & put on amazing events. Join our team and help build a better world.

Due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) restrictions, all of our shops are closed to protect our volunteers, supporters and staff. We have also paused recruitment for most of our volunteer opportunities. If you can't find an opportunity near you, please check back in a few weeks for the latest news. 

Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you as a volunteer very soon.

If you have any questions about an existing application or about volunteering, please email volunteersupport@savethechildren.org.uk.

Volunteering Abroad

Unfortunately we do not send volunteers from the UK to any of our overseas programmes. In line with our aim of encouraging self-sufficiency and building skills locally, we employ national staff and involve volunteers wherever possible.
