Without our team of fantastic volunteers The Maypole Project could not reach out to as many families as we do. We have a vision to expand the number of families we work with and increase the support we offer them and volunteers are at the heart of this vision. If you would like to help us achieve our ambitious plans by volunteering for us, we would love to hear from you!
There are a huge variety of volunteering roles available at The Maypole Project and our current opportunities are listed below. If you are not sure what you would like to do and want to discuss it further, please contact us on 01689 851596 or by email.
If none of these opportunities suit you at the moment but you would like us to keep you up to date with new volunteer opportunities, then please sign up to our e-newsletter
