Saturday (27 October) is Make a Difference Day which is the perfect occasion for YOU to get involved in supporting the Trust.
Incredible volunteers are the reason every year more and more young people in recovery are able to join a Trust trip, and keep coming back each summer.
Survival rates are increasing which means there are more young people that need our help, but the more young people we support the more volunteers we need.
There really is no better way to ‘Make a Difference’ then to volunteer – it’s rewarding, inspiring and lots of FUN!
Alex started volunteering on Trust trips this summer and has been blown away by the transformations he witnessed, not only in the young people but in himself too.
“Volunteering has been amazing, emotional and inspiring, it’s helped me believe in myself and deal with my depression. I instantly felt welcomed into the Trust family.”
This year 183 incredible volunteers like Alex supported the Trust, as you can see this number has dramatically increased since our first trip back in 2003 as has the number of young people we support.
Each year we hold volunteer training and update days in Birmingham and Glasgow, allowing us to welcome new volunteers and show them what it’s all about.
TRIP VOLUNTEER ROLES
We couldn’t run our trips without medical volunteers, crewmates (ideally Day Skipper level) and travel liaisons to assist with hospital pickups and drop-offs.
EVENT VOLUNTEER ROLES
Get involved in our awesome events, we’re always looking for enthusiastic cheer champions to encourage our fundraisers and marshalls to ensure no one gets lost.

*The welfare and safety of the young people on our trips is of paramount importance. All volunteers are *DBS (England and Wales) or *PVG (Scotland) checked and undertake safeguarding training.
