Volunteering Roles

Family First would not exist without our amazing team of volunteers. We have a range of exciting volunteering opportunities and are always looking for new people to join the team.

All our roles are flexible and only require an average of one to two hours a week. In order to meet the continuing demand for our service, our volunteer roles are always open to applicants. We offer full training and support both before you start and throughout your time with us including regular supervision. Positions available include

Family Mentors:

Could you make a difference to a family’s life by giving them an hour a week of your time. Full training and ongoing support is given for this incredibly rewarding role.

Creative Communications:

Do you have the skills to help us increase our social media presence and help us to increase opportunities to engage with our potential supporters, families and referrers? We need someone with the drive and desire to help us boost our profile. This role could be flexible and fit around your existing commitments.

Fundraising Help:

There are a vast number of roles for grabs in this field. Could you do a one off event to raise money for us, help with our fundraising events in person on the night or behind the scenes? We rely solely on grants and donations to survive. Do you have the skills to apply for grants for us?

If you are interested in any of the above roles or feel you can offer support in another way we would LOVE to hear from you. Please contact Fundraising Coordinator Annmarie at: annmarie.goode@familyfirst-uk.org

“I have found an inner peace, acceptance if you like of the challenging life I have been given. I very much look forward to my hour with my volunteer and feel blessed that they have cared enough to help me. am very thankful that they are just there guiding me out of my darkness.”
