Volunteers are central to our future and work. Our opportunities are designed to be meaningful and enjoyable; you can give as much or as little as you like to further our cause and to ensure our success.

Our roles are valued across the organisation and offered flexibly from a few hours, days or weeks to a few years.

Why Volunteer?

  • To help others
  • To make new friends
  • To make a difference
  • To learn new skills

Volunteer opportunities will be advertised below on our social media and external sites including the University of Leicester Job Desk.

All volunteers must be at least 18 years old.

Application Process

Send your completed application form to

Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we are unable to acknowledge receipt (unless specifically requested) or provide information on why an applicant has not been shortlisted.

Therefore, if you have not heard back from us within two weeks of the closing date, please assume that your application has been unsuccessful. However, we are grateful for the interest you have shown.

If your application is successful, we will invite you in for an informal discussion so that we can get to know each other a little bit and explore the role you have applied for. If you are unsure about the role, we can offer you a taster session so that you can decide if the role is suitable, without any further commitment from either side.

All volunteers will undergo a full induction and training programme, either prior to or at the beginning of the placement.
