"Volunteering for Break is one of the most valuable and enjoyable things I've ever done in my life"

Volunteering Opportunities

Do something amazing today. Become a Break volunteer.

Why should I volunteer?

By volunteering for Break, you will be making a massive difference to young people across East Anglia. Volunteering is a great way to gain experience and skills, make friends and socialise, and give back to our community.

How can I get involved?

Become a Fundraising Volunteer
We have lots of varied roles available to our Break fundraising volunteers! No matter how much time you can spare, from two hours a year to a more regular commitment of two hours a week, we can find a role that you will enjoy and that will make a huge difference to the charity. Be it helping out at one of our events, in our office, or getting out there with collection buckets, we appreciate all kinds of help!

For more information on the volunteer roles that we have available in fundraising, please contact our fundraising and events team on 01603 670100 or email

Volunteer as a group
We also have volunteering opportunities available for groups and businesses. This can include things like gardening or decorating at one of our children's homes, helping at one of our events, making up Easter/Christmas Hampers, or helping to host a supermarket bucket collection.

Become a Retail Volunteer
Working in a Break charity shop is about more than the jobs needing to be done. It’s about meeting new people, making friends and working as part of a team, all while raising funds to support vulnerable children, young people, and families. As a valued member of our Break volunteer team you’ll be entitled to 20% off donated goods.

For further information, an application form, or to sign up for a taster session, please pop into your local Break shop!

Become a Volunteer Mentor

Mentoring is a one-to-one, non-judgmental relationship in which an individual volunteer gives time to support and encourage young people from Break. We are looking for committed people who have a few hours to spare every couple of weeks over a sustained period to support young people:

  • with disabilities
  • in care
  • moving on to independence
  • and young carers.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, our Moving On Team would love to hear from you. 

Please contact Clare Oakley at clare.oakley@break-charity.org or for more information and an application form click here.
