Volunteer for Back Up

“When I first started volunteering with Back Up, I used to worry about people’s perceptions of my disability. Now I have more confidence and the amazing feeling I get from helping other people is worth more than any amount of money.”

Our team of over 300 active volunteers do amazing things every day – supporting children and young people in education, delivering wheelchair skills sessions, helping out on courses, mentoring people, raising vital funds, joining us at bucket collections, helping at events, and helping raise awareness. Read on to find out more of the ways you can support us as a volunteer.
