It's a great way to help vulnerable children and build your skills
There are four ways you can volunteer:
- volunteer in one of our high street shops
- work directly with children, young people and their families
- join our team of student volunteers
- become a Barnardo's fundraiser
All you need is enthusiasm and a desire to help.
We'll give you training and support, and you can choose how much time you volunteer.
Whatever you do, you’ll be part of a large, helpful community of people coming together to transform children’s lives.
You’ll also be learning useful skills and gaining valuable work experience.
We welcome volunteers from all nationalities and backgrounds. Our volunteers include job-seekers, retired workers, asylum seekers, full-time workers, students and schoolchildren.
Please note that we will have to run screening checks on all volunteers working with children.
