Volunteer from home

You could even support our marketing and fundraising teams from the comfort of your own home!

Linda's story

“Having been such an outgoing person before I really wanted to do something with my newly returned confidence and so a member of Henshaws staff suggested I get involved with volunteering and run a social group for other people like me.

It was perfect really, I got to give back to Henshaws after they’d helped me so much and I could also do something that made me feel like me again!”
