Volunteering over the festive period 🎁
It is fantastic that the festive period has inspired you to think about volunteering, however there are often a lack of opportunities available at this time as organisations will close for the holidays and many organisations that provide support services for homeless people have already told us they don’t need any more help as any services they plan to offer are well-supported by their existing volunteers.
You might want to consider making donations to foodbanks or charities helping vulnerable people. You could get creative and do your own fundraising or donation drive locally with family and friends.
Remember that volunteering isn’t just for Christmas: you can find lots of opportunities right here all year round that might only need a few hours of your time: search all live opportunities.
You can register for an account via this link, which will allow you to apply directly with the organisations that need your support. You can also receive our monthly newsletter with latest opportunities and news.
If you want any further support please contact our Volunteering Support Team via email@example.com or call 0141 226 3431.
