What volunteering opportunities are available?

As a national charity, transforming the lives of disabled children all over the UK, we have opportunities for you to volunteer in every location. Please see below opportunities to find out which roles can be done flexibly from the comfort of your own home.

If you are looking for volunteering opportunities, around the Staffordshire area we are now in our new home the Caudwell International Children’s Centre, dedicated to assessment, intervention, support and research into autism and neurodevelopmental disorders. The Centre will help us change the lives of even more children and we want you to be part of it!

Corporate Volunteering

Does your organisation offer volunteering opportunities as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility Policy? If so, why not put those hours to good use and help us in transforming the lives of disabled children.

Every Volunteer is instrumental to our mission at Caudwell Children, without the dedication and commitment made to us each day, we wouldn’t have been able to support over 50,000 children with over 653 medical conditions.

Here at Caudwell Children we have a variety of ways for you and your colleagues to get involved and help contribute to the life changing work that we do. Look below for some of the ways you can help…

Caudwell Children are rather unique, in that 100% of the donated funds that we receive go straight to the children and the families that we support. We are always looking for ways to fundraise and would love for you to get involved. We pride ourselves on offering flexible yet meaningful opportunities and will always work with your team to find the right fundraising opportunity that works for the both of us.

We are so pleased that events are starting to get back on track and ours are no exception. From ladies lunches to our Butterfly Ball, we have lots of opportunities to support our events team in ensuring each event is just as special as the last. Our events take place around the UK at different times in the year, if you would like more information on our events calendar, please contact a member of the team, who will work with you in finding the right event to support.

Help us spread the word

Engaging with families and members of the public is vital if we are to succeed in transforming the lives of disabled children around the UK. We are looking for volunteers who can join us in sharing our services to families who may be eligible. In having that national voice we are also able to increase our income streams and volunteering teams across the UK. 

For more information on how your business could get involved in championing Caudwell Children, please contact our volunteering team. 

Maintain our award winning centre

The Caudwell International Children’s Centre is home to the UK’s first purpose built Autism Assessment Centre, built to ensure we are able to support every child in the UK with Autism. An integral part of the centre and to the autism assessment provided are our grounds and sensory gardens. We are always on the lookout for any keen gardeners to assist our team in the overall maintenance of our gardens, bringing a smile to the face of everybody who sees them. 

This opportunity is available all year round, for more information on lending a hand, please contact our volunteering team who will arrange the day with you.

Skills based volunteering

Are you part of a large network or have a particular skill that you would like to share? With any of our volunteering opportunities we want to create the most meaningful and enriching experience, if you feel you have a skill to share, please get in touch to discuss ways to utilise your expertise.  

Do you offer match funding?

Match funding or match giving is a great opportunity for charities to raise additional funds through an employee’s volunteering or fundraising efforts. Please speak to your employer about match funding opportunities or feel free to contact the volunteering team to find out what this means to our charity.
