Volunteering at Back Up fundraising events

Back Up receives no government funding and relies on the generosity and efforts of its supporters. Our income comes from major events, corporate support and sponsorship, trusts and foundations, community fundraising and individual giving.
Volunteering for Back Up is an integral part of our fundraising success. Many of those who have benefited from our services often go on to support us by raising money to continue our work and/or volunteering their time, realising at first hand the importance of the work we do. 

We have lots of ways for you to volunteer within fundraising.

What does it involve?
  • Volunteering in the office – this could be anything from designing posters and writing letters to research and general administrative duties
  • Volunteering at one of our major events
  • Joining one of our dinner committees
  • Offer to be a speaker at one of our dinners or a local community event
  • Organising your own fundraising event with families and friends.

Support and guidance will be provided appropriate to the role.
