Our fundraising volunteers are very special people. Their help means we can achieve so much more.  Why not read about Jill Huby's experience as a fundraising volunteer or Helen George as an office volunteer.

Whether its an hour a week or a couple of days each month, there are lots of ways you can help us out.

You could:

Be an ambassador for our charity

What will I be doing?

We are urgently looking for volunteers to support Brighter Futures with evening talks and cheque collections. Could you spare a couple of hours a month to attend local community groups? Could you talk about the charity with passion and thank our supports for their donations?

All we ask is that you are reliable and committed. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to gain experience within the charity sector.  

If this sounds like something you could do please contact us.
