Be a part of it...

Volunteers have supported After Adoption since we started helping people in 1990. Some people volunteer because they’ve used our services or been affected by adoption. Others work with us to gain a greater understanding of support services or just to have fun whilst making a difference.

Whatever your reason for considering volunteering with us, we’d be happy to talk to you about what you’d like to offer and what we can provide in return.

Roles vary from helping with office-based tasks, to sourcing prizes for fundraising.

We ask that you commit to volunteering on a regular basis so that we can build a relationship with you. This will help us to understand your skills, ambitions and provide you with opportunities that you will get most from.

You can hear about one volunteer’s story by watching the video below. Chris volunteers on both our ActionLine and within our ReUnite service.

If you are interested in volunteering with After Adoption send email to HR.
