Become a volunteer

There are so many ways you can help young people rebuild their confidence after cancer through volunteering. From using your professional expertise to cheerleading at events, it all makes a huge difference.

How can I get involved?

Meet volunteer Kirstie

"When I think of the trips, I just think of the fun that I’m having."​​​

Kirstie has come full circle with the Trust. She sailed as a young person, became a volunteer, and has returned in her new capacity as a trip medic. After years of spending summers with the Trust, Kirstie sees the changes in young people as they return for trips again and again.

Come and Skipper

Could you use your professional sailing skills to help young people rebuild their lives after cancer? Each year the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust employs Freelance Skippers to work on our sailing trips from Cowes and Largs between June and October. As a Skipper, you have overall responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of the crew, the safety and security of the vessel and its equipment at all times.
