Workaid is fortunate to have volunteers from all walks of life and of all ages. Whether you are retired, at school or college (minimum age: 16), taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, a corporate body or have a special need, we would really value your skills. No specialist knowledge is required and there is something for everyone, not to mention stopping for tea and coffee breaks! All you require is enthusiasm.
We believe everyone has something to give. Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to work together and learn new skills, enhance your CV or just do something fun and practical. Giving your time can open up a whole new world to you, while benefiting someone else via the projects we support.
In our Chesham workshop teams of volunteers sort, refurbish and pack tools and equipment ready for transportation. In our office, volunteers process the project requests, manage paperwork, prepare and send tweets and social media communications and all the duties associated with running the charity. The Workaid Shop is an essential part of the organisation where volunteers sell items we cannot send to Africa to raise funds.
