Volunteering

The Children's Trust relies on the support and dedication of over 500 volunteers. They come from all walks of life and are an important part of our workforce, together giving over 100,000 hours of their time each year.

Angela's art clubSome volunteers come wanting the opportunity to brush up on rusty skills or learn new ones, some to enjoy the company, the involvement and unique Children’s Trust atmosphere, but all are determined to support the Trust in providing the best possible support to disabled children and their families.

Volunteers can be found helping with pool and therapy sessions, helping on outings and in the classroom, reading to the children or entertaining them, driving our mini-buses taking children on outings or to hospital appointments, working in admin roles, helping in our library, collecting and delivering our charity collection boxes, working in our charity shops, organising fundraising events, the list goes on…

Many volunteers have been with us for years and each year we acknowledge this with long service awards. Our designated Volunteers Department works hard to keep all volunteers up to date with news and events, to keep them involved in Trust life and to make sure their contribution is properly acknowledged.

Each year our staff nominate volunteers for our Volunteer of the Year Awards. Acknowledgement of our volunteers also extends beyond the Trust, with some of our deserving volunteers receiving local and national voluntary services awards.
