Exciting full-time placements with Volunteering Matters

Volunteering Matters has a wide variety of full time volunteering opportunities for young people aged 18-35 who are looking to gain skills and experience or looking for a challenging and fun year out in the UK.

Opportunities are available throughout the year for a period of 6-12 months. No previous experience or qualifications are required. Volunteers should be aged 18-35 and be UK/EEA nationals living in the UK.

Volunteering opportunities are away from home and accommodation and subsistence is provided including £35 per week for day to day expenses plus food (or up to £40 per week to buy food).  Volunteers could be placed anywhere in the UK depending on the project to which the volunteer is matched. There are hundreds of opportunities and a wide range of different projects volunteers can get involved in.

The type of opportunities are wide ranging but are largely within health or social care settings.

Typically, these might include:

  • Supporting adults or children that have a disability in their own home
  • Helping disabled students at university e.g. by note taking or helping with day-to-day living
  • Providing respite care for full time carers
  • Volunteering in a group or community home
  • Providing support or help in a homeless shelter
  • Mentoring and befriending young people at risk of offending or exclusion from school
