Volunteering Opportunities


Volunteering abroad can give you an amazing and rewarding time whilst experiencing cultures very different from ours here in the UK.

Unlike with UK-based charities, navigating international opportunities can sometimes be a bit of a minefield. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of organisations that we have dealt with over the years. We would, however, advise that you research the organisation and opportunity thoroughly before fully committing your time and/or money. We want you to have a safe and fulfilling experience, so here are a few things you should consider:

  • What does the organisation do?
  • How are they managed?
  • What would you be expected to do as a volunteer?
  • What do you have to pay and where does this money go?
  • Other things to think about could be; flights, insurance, visas, vaccinations, equipment, etc.

If you have any questions about volunteering abroad, contact our Employability team at [email protected]

We would recommend that you look at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website before deciding where to volunteer abroad.
