Even the smallest act can make a difference

We think that volunteering can take many forms. In addition to our longer-term volunteering roles, we have opportunitues to help support our work in a quick and convenient way, suitable for busy schedules and beyond the traditional definition of volunteering.

Even the smallest action can make a difference toward helping the children we support and advocate on behalf of. Taking a few moments to tweet about a campaign or answer a polling question helps our larger goals of spreading the word about our services and campaigns and in turn, affects the lives of children throughout the country.

The wonderful thing about this type of volunteering is that it is quick to complete, there is no waiting, and you can choose activities based on your schedule, interests, and skill set. And if you have a little more time, we also have suggestions for what you can do in a single day. 

Volunteer for a day, or a few minutes or seconds

Get involved in our Seriously Awkward campaign: Watch our video on why 16 and 17 year olds need more support, and contact your MP to tell them how important this is. 

Find out about our inquiry into the impact of cyberbullying on children and young people's mental health. If you are aged between 11-25 you can take our survey to support our inquiry, or if you are over 25 you can share the survey link with an 11-25 year old.
