Volunteering for Gingerbread

We really value our volunteers and volunteer fundraisers who support our work and help us raise as much funding as possible. Please do get in touch if any of the opportunities listed appeal to you.

Join Gingerbread

Gingerbread is a warm, friendly charity that works closely with the families we support. We strive to improve their lives and  see the benefits of this support on a daily basis. You have the chance to experience and contribute to this!

Make a difference

Your support has the potential to make a huge difference. It can positively impact on parents and children and your work will cross the generational gap and leave a lasting impression on both them and you.


Volunteering is a fantastic experience, as is the thrill of helping people. It also gives you the opportunity to build a background in this field should you want to pursue a career in any number of jobs.
