Volunteers

Volunteers are absolutely vital to our service. Put very simply, without them, we couldn’t exist.

We have lots of volunteering opportunities available; on our Playbus, in our fundraising office and during our respite weekends. Below are some ways in which you could help us:

Events volunteer

We hold a number of events throughout the year, from fun runs to fashion shows, and we are always looking out for people to come along and help us on the day. Whether you are cheering on runners or managing a stall we couldn’t organise these events without the help of volunteers.

It’s a fantastic way to get involved with the charity, see our fundraisers doing inspiring things and hopefully have fun at the same time!

Regional volunteer

As a small charity, the support volunteers give us in their own communities is invaluable. We are looking to build a network of volunteers to represent us in their local area and to raise awareness of Honeypot and the amazing children we support. There may be opportunities to support people fundraising for us, attend events, or help us thank members of the public for their amazing support.

Regional volunteers are integral to what we do and making sure people enjoy working with us. It’s a role with lots of variety and a great way to see the wonderful things people are doing in your area.

Start a volunteer group

If you’re thinking of volunteering with Honeypot, why not get your friends involved too?! You could start a group, get together once every couple of months and think of ways you could raise awareness of the charity or raise money for us. We can put you in touch with other volunteers in your area and if you ask around you might be surprised how many people would like to be involved. Groups not only make volunteering more fun, they also give you more opportunities to be creative, get out there and raise awareness of Honeypot.

Help at our summer respite breaks

Each summer we run respite breaks for new Honeypot children. Giving your time to help can make a real difference and be a very rewarding experience.

If you are interested in a volunteering position at Honeypot House, and are available to work between June and September, we would love to hear from you. A respite break can be 2/3 or 4 nights long and we expect volunteers to work the duration of the break.

The recruitment process begins every September and closes in January.

Collections

This is a simple and brilliant way to help raise awareness of Honeypot and raise some money for us at the same time. If you can spare a few hours then please just let us know and we can apply for permission for you to collect in a local supermarket or town centre.We will provide you with a t-shirt, collection tin, and everything you need so please get in touch!
