A volunteer is anyone who helps and supports us without receiving or expecting payment. Don’t worry if you’re unsure right now of what you need to do. We’ll give you an induction into our charitable family when you join us, and explain everything that your role will involve and give you guidance throughout.

What Do Our Volunteers Do?
Our volunteers perform a number of different roles, all of which are a huge help to both staff and service users. Whether you are assisting customers to access information on the website or with their specific tasks, acting as a mentor to a young person with their business/project idea or supporting our staff during one of our networking events – your role as a volunteer is always important to us and the people we support.
Volunteers are extended the right to be given meaningful assignments, treated as equal co-workers, full involvement and recognition for work completed. In return, our volunteers agree to actively perform their duties to the best of their abilities and to remain loyal to the values, goals and procedures of BBI UK.
By listening to, spending time with and talking to the people we support, you can make a real difference to people’s lives and can ultimately help us to turn more lives around
