We’re very lucky to have had lots of fantastic volunteers come through our door over the years – from students looking to gain some work experience, through to retired finance directors keen to share their wisdom. We plan all our volunteer placements to ensure that not only do we receive valuable support, but also that our volunteers have the best possible experience.
There’s a variety of ways you can get involved, both in the UK and – occasionally – in Malawi:
- internships in communications, trust fundraising, events fundraising, and programmes;
- lending a hand at exciting events, such as art auctions or concerts;
- cheering on our fundraisers as they take on challenges for us;
- through the Accountancy for International Development scheme.

Current Malawi-based opportunities
Occasionally we send long-term volunteers to support our team in Malawi; any opportunities will be listed here.
Other volunteering opportunities
If there’s nothing specific listed here but you have a burning desire to volunteer in some capacity, either in the UK or Malawi, send an email to [email protected] with your CV and explain what you’re interested in doing and your previous experience. We can only take volunteers where there is a specific organisational need so we can’t promise anything, but we’d love to get you on board if we can.
