How to become a volunteer

Put your skills to work and be the change you want to see for children. Love shopping? Join one of our 120 charity shops. Events? Bring supporters together at one of our 300 local fundraising branches. Start volunteering today!


Giving your time means giving children a chance to live their best lives.

Now that Covid-19 restrictions have eased and our shops are open, we are adding more volunteering openings every day. If you can't find an opportunity near you yet, please check back in a few weeks. 

Want to chat about an existing application or have any questions about volunteering? Email volunteersupport@savethechildren.org.uk.

Can't wait to have you on the team!

Volunteering Abroad

Unfortunately we do not send volunteers from the UK to volunteer abroad. To reduce travel and make the most of local skills, we employ national staff and involve volunteers wherever possible.
