Become a volunteer

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.

Current opportunities

We do not currently have any volunteer vacancies at Designability.

If you would like us to let you know when an opportunity becomes available,  please email fundraising@designability.org.uk
