Our work touches the lives of literally thousands of children and young people each year. This work is only possible with the help and support of volunteers.
If you have passion and desire to work with children or young people, and to make a positive impact upon their lives, we would love to hear from you.
There are many ways to be involved in your local school community: we aim to support anyone able and willing to commit to serving schools in some way.
Here's a brief description of various roles below. Please contact Patrick or Shelley in our office for more information on these, or if you’d like help or support to establish some other form of work in a local school.
