We’re a Bath-based charity that operates on a national scale and we would love you to join us in making a difference

How you can help

Our volunteer opportunities vary throughout the year. However, we’re often looking for help with fundraising, graphic design work for promotional material and engineering and/or product design assistance.

Roles vary from short-term project work to long-term opportunities.
