"Volunteering for Break is one of the most valuable and enjoyable things I've ever done in my life"

Volunteering Opportunities

Make something amazing happen - become a Break volunteer.


How can you volunteer for Break?

Become a Fundraising Volunteer
We have lots of varied roles available to our Break fundraising volunteers. No matter how much time you can spare, from two hours a year to a more regular commitment of two hours a week, we can find a role that you will enjoy and that will make a huge difference to the charity. Roles include Collecting Pot Organisers (CPO), Bucket Collection Volunteers, Volunteer Speaker, Events Volunteer, Office Volunteer and Christmas Card Shop Volunteers.

Volunteer as a group
We also have volunteering opportunities available for groups and businesses. This can include things like gardening or decorating at one of our care homes, helping at one of our events, making up Easter/Christmas Hampers or helping to host a supermarket bucket collection.

Join us
For more information on the volunteer roles that we have available in fundraising, please contact our fundraising and events team on 01603 670100 or email
events@break-charity.org 

Become a Retail Volunteer
Working in a Break charity shop is about more than the jobs needing to be done. It’s about meeting new people, making friends and working as part of a team, all while raising funds to support vulnerable children, young people and families. As a valued member of our Break volunteer team you’ll be entitled to 20% off donated goods.

For further information, an application form, or to sign up for a taster session, please visit us in store.

Become a Volunteer Mentor
Mentoring is a one-to-one, non-judgmental relationship in which an individual volunteer gives time to support and encourage young people from Break. We are looking for committed people who have a few hours to spare every couple of weeks over a sustained period, to support young people with disabilities; in care; moving on to independence; and young carers. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, our Moving On Team would love to hear from you.

Please contact Clare Oakley at clare.oakley@break-charity.org or for more information and an application form click here.

Volunteer as a group
We also have volunteering opportunities available for groups and businesses. This can include things like gardening or decorating at one of our care homes, helping at one of our events, making up Easter/Christmas Hampers or helping to host a supermarket bucket collection.

Do something amazing today. By volunteering for Break, you will be joining a team that is helping to change young lives locally. The rewards of volunteering are different for everyone, but include feeling valued, meeting new people and making friends, learning and developing new skills, knowing that you are making a difference by helping others. We have volunteers who help with one of the roles above, and some who help with many of them.

We are so grateful for whatever time our volunteers can spare and simply couldn’t do what we do without them. We would love for you to be part of our volunteer team.
Get in touch today and help us to change young lives.
