Office-based volunteering in London and remotely

Volunteering is a great way for you to play a vital role in our work helping to improve the lives of people with disabilities worldwide. It is also an opportunity to gain valuable work experience and improve your career prospects, while using your skills for a worthwhile cause.

We have a friendly and (normally) busy office in London, but currently we are working from home due to the situation with Covid-19. However there are still ways to get involved, and we often require support from volunteers with a variety of skills to contribute to our administration, fundraising, communciations and technical teams.

If you’re looking for a way to support our cause, why not volunteer your time and help out, either in our London office or remotely.

Our current volunteering opportunities


We are seeking new trustees to join our board. We are looking for people who can bring energy, passion and drive to help us achieve our mission and ensure the charity is effectively governed and managed.

We particularly encourage applications from people with disabilities and people from ethnic-minority groups to align with our goal of ensuring representation from the communities and people that we serve.

We are also keen to hear from people who could support the development of our ambitious Major Giving programme or who can help strengthen our media presence and communications.
