Become a volunteer

Without our volunteers, our organisation would come to a standstill – and so would our cause. We have several committees of volunteers, including Marketing, Research and Events. And we will take whatever time you can give.

Most of our volunteers commit to around 3 or 4 hours a week, and some are more ad-hoc, providing more support around events and less during quieter times. If you’d like to help us achieve our vision, please get in touch!
