Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, “The most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to the people.” (Al-Mu`jam Al-Awsat)

Make your time matter

Get Involved and Make a Difference

Poverty around the world has left millions of people without the bare necessities such as food, water, shelter and good health. We take for granted these necessities which we have generously available to us. That’s why we need people like you to volunteer your time in whatever way you can so collectively we can give something back to those in need.

There are so many ways to get involved, from basic warehouse work, packing, driving and volunteering in our offices. Whether it’s minutes or months, hours or days, the time you give really does matter.

FAQs

I can’t find a suitable role. Am I still able to help?

Contact the Crisis Aid team at [email protected] or call 01582 211 066 and we can discuss your requirements.

My company encourages me to volunteer. Can you help?

There are many ways in which you can volunteer, either as an individual or as a team. If you can’t find what you are looking for or want to discuss your requirements in more detail, please contact us on [email protected] or call 01582 211 066

What if I have a criminal record?

As an organisation committed to equality and diversity, we recognise the contribution that all people can make as employees or volunteers, and so we welcome enquiries of interest from everyone. Crisis Aid believes people can change and we love to give people second chances. We find some of our best volunteers are those who have previous convictions. For more information please ask us to send you our policy for recruiting people with criminal convictions.

How can I prove I’m a volunteer if someone asks?

Volunteers in some roles will receive a photo identity card but not all volunteers will be given one. If anyone questions you, call us on 01582 211 066 and we’ll verify that you’re a volunteer.

Receive training and support

All volunteers will have an induction and, if needed, you will also get specific training for your role. Staff members are always on hand to provide ongoing help and support during your time volunteering with us.

As a Crisis Aid volunteer, you will:

Make a meaningful difference to people affected by poverty and oppression, receive any necessary training for your role and have access to ongoing development.
