Some of these opportunities are work-from-home, and some are available across the nation, so no matter where you are, there is a volunteer opportunity for you to get stuck in with!


Art and Design

Are you studying fashion or textiles and want to give back to your local community? You could volunteer your time to sew clothing together to create blankets for the homeless. This opportunity can be flexible to work around your commitments and is a great way to practice your skills.



Girl Guiding

Brownie and Girl Guide units are looking for dance or fitness students to teach the girls small routines during their sessions. This opportunity can be done with a unit in High Wycombe or you could get in contract with your local unit and see if you can get involved there! This opportunity would be low commitment and would be a great way to practice teaching to younger students.

Dance Woking

Located in Woking and the surrounding Surrey area, Dance Woking manages various dance events throughout the year, both indoors and outdoors, and they couldn’t do it without the enthusiasm and dedication of the volunteers who give up their time towards making events run smoothly. To find out more about the volunteering opportunities and to get a volunteering pack visit their site.
