If you want to support a charity for children or young people, why not volunteer to work directly with them? It’s a great way to help educate and inspire future generations. There are vulnerable babies, children and young adults from all corners of the world whose health, education or general well-being can be improved. With the right time and energy, you have the opportunity to make a real difference to these children’s lives.
When young people are going through a difficult time, they may not have anywhere to turn – not everyone has families to support them. Charities can give young people a place to turn, offering them kindness and hope. But, they can’t do this without support from volunteers – whether its through fundraising or direct contact with children and young people in need. Being slightly older, you can bring useful knowledge and life experience to supportive roles within children and young people’s charities.
There are hundreds of ways to volunteer your time.
