We regularly update this page as new roles become available.

Our volunteers come from all backgrounds: retired people with time to spare to come into the office or work on significant projects from home, young people on a gap year between school and university or with spare time while looking for work, parents who are available to work a few hours in the middle of the day, people running small businesses or in creative or other professions who want to offer pro bono professional support. Volunteers carrying out significant roles can use desk space at our central London offices but many work from home.
