Volunteering

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.

Thinking of volunteering?

Becoming a volunteer with Break can be an incredibly rewarding experience, whether it's an ongoing commitment, occasional or a one-off. Complete the Break volunteer application form below and a member of the team will be in touch soon.

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.

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 team to find out more, (address below)

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