Volunteer – Humankind


We value our volunteers and seek to ensure their diverse roles are rewarding and beneficial to all. Humankind holds the Investors in Volunteers accreditation.

Volunteering with Humankind benefits us all

We are committed to the Investing In Volunteers’ standard.People who spend time volunteering with Humankind are treated with respect and are considered very much part of our team. We couldn’t do our work without our volunteers and we understand that they bring their experience to enhance our services.

Read about the recognition event we recently held for volunteers.

Rewarding work

We can offer great volunteering opportunities which are fulfilling and rewarding and which can lead to paid employment with us or elsewhere.

Humankind holds the Investors in Volunteers accreditation which recognises our commitment to providing an all round volunteer experience. We employ a dedicated Volunteer Coordinator and all projects have a volunteer lead.

“While studying my undergrad and working up to 30 hours a week, Humankind has given me the opportunity to volunteer around my other commitments and I couldn’t be more grateful. Without lived experience, my academic study aided in adapting to working in the charity sector and with these skills, I couldn’t be happier with securing my graduate role as a HOPE Care Coordinator! Thank you Humankind!”

A variety of roles

Humankind offer a variety of roles and opportunities for its volunteers. These range from advocate to researcher, admin support to peer mentor, group facilitator to data entry and fundraiser to complimentary therapist. We have also recently created new Volunteer Fundraising Ambassador roles aimed at supporting our corporate fundraising nationally and regionally.

Humankind are keen to support volunteers in achieving their end goal, whether that is to gain skills and experience or to be ready for paid employment. We want to make sure you enjoy your role and get the most out of volunteering with us.

Our Peer Mentoring course is highly successful in equipping people for the rewarding challenges ahead.
