There are so many great ways to get involved, from joining our cheer squad at the London Marathon, working in our Head Office or directly supporting families.

  • Family support volunteer

    Volunteers play a vital role in supporting the care we offer to families with a seriously ill child.

    Family support volunteers work alongside Family Support Workers in a range of roles and provide a really valuable addition to our services, allowing us to support more families than we would otherwise be able to. Volunteers can accompany our Family Support Workers to support families at home, in hospital, or in the community, helping at support groups and supporting siblings.

  • Office volunteer

    Perhaps you are a university graduate seeking some invaluable work experience whilst you hunt for that perfect first job. Or are you an experienced professional who now finds that you have time on your hands?

    We are always looking for volunteers to help us in our Head Office in Leatherhead. Perhaps you can offer some IT expertise, Marketing and PR knowledge or Fundraising experience? If you would like to get involved then please contact us.

    Volunteer Night (Leatherhead office only)

    We also run a volunteer evening on Tuesdays from 5-7.30pm where volunteers come into the office and help the fundraising and marketing teams.

  • Volunteer at an event

    We have plenty of events that run throughout the year that you can get involved in. From cheering on our team of runners at the London Marathon, helping collect donations, or supporting staff at our annual Trust in Fashion event at the Savoy, we always need an extra pair of hands.

    To find out more about the events in your area, please email our volunteer team at volunteering@rainbowtrust.org.uk.

  • Become an Ambassador

    If you have experience in public speaking or are great with people, why not use your skills to help us raise the profile of Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity in your local community?

    You can get involved by:

    • Attending cheque presentations in your local area and thanking our donors face-to-face
    • Giving short talks about Rainbow Trust and our work to community groups
    • Getting people involved in our latest appeals and campaigns

    If you’re interested in helping to raise awareness of the valuable work that we do, please get in touch on volunteering@rainbowtrust.org.uk.

  • Volunteer drivers

    Rainbow Trust families often need support getting to and from hospital appointments and our volunteer drivers are vital in helping us to provide this support to each family that needs it.

    You can commit to driving either on a regular or occasional basis, depending on personal preference and the needs of the families. (Must have a full driving licence for 2 years or more)

    To find out more or to apply, please get in touch with our volunteer team on volunteering@rainbowtrust.org.uk.
