Become a volunteer

Volunteering with babies and young children is not just about learning new skills, but it's also a huge amount of fun! You can make a real difference to someone's life, have something new to add to your CV, support a cause that you care about and meet new people.

Some of our partners have opportunities to volunteer with them. More details of these can be found below.

Whether you want to organise or support a local event such as a ball, quiz or coffee morning, or clap and cheer runners and riders raising vital funds for the charity, the NSPCC value your contribution to the NSPCC. Your volunteering will help them protect vulnerable children from abuse. The NSPCC recognise the importance of flexibility when it comes to volunteering locally.
