The most precious thing we have

Time is one of the most precious things we have. We can’t get back time, stop time, or earn more time. Our time on earth is a fixed but unknown quantity.

That is why the giving of our time is a particularly precious and generous gift.

If you’d like to volunteer your time, we have some fantastic opportunities to offer. It could be with young people, in one of our shops, speaking about our work or campaigning to bring vital change to children’s lives.

If you already volunteer with us, thank you! We know how precious your time is.

Well-being and mental health

Give: ‘Do something nice for a friend, or a stranger. Thank someone. Smile. Volunteer your time. Join a community group. Look out, as well as in. Seeing yourself, and your happiness, linked to the wider community can be incredibly rewarding and creates connections with the people around you.’ Five ways to well-being, New Economics Foundation

Get two for one. If you volunteer for The Children's Society then you’ll be supporting young people’s well-being and mental health.
