Volunteer in the UK

We are a small but busy charity and as we develop and grow, so does the work that supports us. We are therefore always looking for volunteers to work alongside our team here in the UK.  Whether it be administration, events or writing and design, there is plenty to get involved with.

Whatever your skills, experience and interests, we can find something to suit you and would love to hear from you!

Why volunteer with us?

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Open Arms and we believe you should be happy and fulfilled in your roles.  We therefore provide as much support as you need including a full induction and training, as well as the chance to connect with other volunteers.  

We will do as much as we can to make sure that you have a wonderful experience with Open Arms Malawi.

When and where?

Our volunteers usually give between 2 to 4 hours per week or every other week. More hours may be required at certain times, but support is always available and we aim to be as flexible as possible. 

Help is always needed in our small office in Harrogate, but if you live outside the area there are many things that can be done from a distance.

What will you gain?

Apart from meeting new people, making new friends, developing new skills and expanding your knowledge, you will become part of an enthusiastic and dedicated team of people who are making a significant contribution to improving the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in the world. 

'We are a small charity with big plans for the future and as we grow so does the work that supports us.  Our volunteers make a tremendous difference to what we can achieve.  Their commitment and enthusiasm is brilliant to see!' Claire Collins, Fundraising Manager.
