Employee volunteering

Action For Kids can offer opportunities to volunteer with our work experience programme, helping young people with disabilities to develop their skills and gain confidence in their abilities.

Volunteering with Action For Kids is a very rewarding experience and offers employees the opportunity to develop their communication and work skills. It also lifts some of the barriers perceived about working with disabled young people.

You can read more about opportunities to volunteer with us here. If you or your company would like to get involved, please contact Lyn Prodger on 020 8347 8111 or email lprodger@actionforkids.org.
