Volunteer in the office

If you would like to share your skills, gain valuable experience, and help people affected by spinal cord injury in a warm and welcoming environment, why not volunteer at Back Up’s office?

We are looking for volunteers to help out with admin, fundraising and marketing support. Whether you have a particular set of professional skills to offer, or enthusiasm and time to help out with general administration, we would love to hear from you.

We are based in Wandsworth, South West London and our offices are wheelchair accessible. Agreed expenses will be reimbursed.

We love people coming in who are willing to turn their hand to anything and everything in the office – you don’t need previous experience. If you can come in for a day, an hour, for a week or for a regular slot, then we have something to offer you.

The money raised through our events ensures our services can continue to help people with spinal cord injury to open their eyes and to look forward to a positive future.

“I hadn’t worked in a while, so the idea of volunteering in the office initially made me nervous. But actually, it was the best thing for me. It’s given me structure and helped me get back into the world of work. I can use my skills in a safe environment, surrounded by supportive people, many of them with injuries like mine. ”
