As a volunteer you can make a huge impact in the lives of vulnerable children and young adults across our region.
Break already has a great team of volunteers but we’re always on the lookout for more. Here’s a taste of the opportunities...


Fundraising volunteering

Whether its serving refreshments at a fun run, or providing help and directions at one of our world class art trails there’s plenty to do and a lot of fun to be had with a real sense of achievement.

This is a great way to participate if you'd rather not undertake the actual event yourself!

This would suit someone who is looking for a one-off or irregular volunteering commitment.

Volunteer mentoring

Becoming a volunteer mentor is a great opportunity to provide regular time to supporting and encouraging a vulnerable young person through casual activities such as going out for lunch or walks; helping young people access local community activities; or providing support with finding employment or educational opportunities. For more information take a look at our Volunteer mentoring page.

This would suit someone who is looking for a regular volunteering commitment.

Shop volunteering

We’re really proud of our shops for the role they play in our communities and helping us raise vital money to support young people. We have volunteer roles in every shop so if you’re interested in finding out more, pick up a Retail Volunteer Application form from one of our stores or take a look at our shops page for more information.

This would suit someone who is looking for a regular volunteering commitment.

Team based volunteering

Very occasionally we’re asked about hosting a team based event for a group of friends or work colleagues to use as a team building exercise. We don’t have these opportunities available all the time but it’s always worth contacting us to see what we need a little help with. We would be happy to work with you to develop an activity that meets your needs and help us too! Email the fundraising team to find out more.

This would suit a group looking for a one-off volunteering commitment.

Make the leap

Becoming a volunteer with Break can be an incredibly rewarding experience, whether it's an ongoing commitment, occasional or a one-off. Any questions, head over to our Contact us section and drop us a line.
