Volunteer

Gloucestershire Young Carers is dedicated to supporting young carers and with your help we can reach more children and young people across the county.

Do you have a specific skill or experience that would be useful to our team and help us support more young carers in Gloucestershire?

We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities available and would love your help.

Whether you enjoy working with young people and are keen to help out at one of our young carer groups or could help spread the word about our work in the local community. You may simply want to donate an hour to putting our newsletter into envelopes or perhaps helping out at one of our fundraising events, we would like to talk to you.

Depending on the opportunity, we may ask you to attend a meeting with the team and further training to support you in your role as a volunteer. If you would like to volunteer for Gloucestershire Young Carers or just have a question, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch by filling out the form or call and speak to Sue Auld on 01452 733060.
