Volunteer your time

Volunteering has been at the heart of Family Action since we were established in 1869 by a group of volunteers dedicated to bringing positive change to the lives of vulnerable families.

150 years later, our volunteers are still changing lives. Whether they are meeting with a family or an individual face to face; taking calls from a parent in need of advice; or working behind the scenes to give vital administrative support to one of our frontline services or Head office teams, every one of our volunteers makes an impact and helps us achieve our aim of strengthening families and communities.

We need volunteers with a range of life experiences, skills and knowledge to fill our diverse range of roles. In return for giving your time and talents, you will receive quality training, ongoing support, and the reward of knowing that you are making a real difference.

Family Action strives to be an inclusive organisation. Our services are accessed by a wide range of people, from all walks of life. We want to see the same diversity reflected among our volunteers. We welcome volunteers from all communities, and would particularly encourage new volunteers who have a lived experience of the issues which we support and address through our services, volunteers who are from an ethnic minority background, volunteers who are LGBTQIA+, and volunteers who have a disability.

If you need any additional support when applying for a volunteer role, or would require any additional support or reasonable adjustments in undertaking a volunteer role, please let us know so that we can work to accommodate this.
