More than 500 people give up their time to support The Children's Society, helping more children and young people experience a good childhood.
The roles our volunteers undertake range from helping run a 'stay and play' with young children and parents, to offering one-to-one mentoring support to an older young person who needs someone to turn to.
You may choose to help a disabled young person get out and enjoy themselves, or to act as an independent visitor for a young person in care. Or you might prefer a more behind-the-scenes role, administrating or organising one of our events or activities.
