Our very first volunteering programme back in 1962 saw our first volunteer placed in a school for naughty children in Glasgow. Since then thousands of young people have volunteered with us full-time in a range of projects from befriending young people to helping disabled people live independently.
Full-time volunteers are recruited, trained and supported to spend six months to a year living away from home where they gain valuable life and employability skills whilst providing a vital service. Accommodation is provided alongside day-to-day expenses.
Anyone living in the UK aged between 18 and 35 can apply to become a full-time volunteer. People living in Austria, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, France, Germany, Honduras, Japan, Korea. Mexico, Panama, Taiwan or the USA can apply to become an international volunteer.
