Benefits of volunteering

Benefits of volunteering with Breakthrough UK

Volunteering just a small amount of your time can lead to a positive change in your community. You can support a disabled person to remove the barriers in their community that make life harder.

Volunteering is ideal if you’re a professional looking for development opportunities, or if you’re looking for something constructive and valuable to do with your spare time. 

We offer lots of training opportunities, the chance to learn new skills and the opportunity to get a good reference and great material for your CV.

You’ll be a part of a proactive, friendly and dynamic team with people from all walks of life – and a valued member of the Breakthrough UK family.

We are flexible, inclusive and accessible. Decide when and where you would like to volunteer.

We cover reasonable travel expenses and offer a small subsistence allowance if you work for a long continuous period. We won’t leave you out of pocket.

Contact us via phone us on 0161 234 3950, text directly on 0793 994 3383 or email for full details.
