Becoming a Volunteer with BAWS

Volunteering with BAWS is a very rewarding experience. The charity has positively influenced many people’s lives over the past 11 years and this is your chance to become a part of that!

BAWS appreciates the time offered to us by volunteers without which so many of our activities would just not be the same. In turn we are devoted to developing our volunteers and we will always try to match you to a volunteering opportunity that suits your interests and skills.

BAWS welcomes volunteers from any background, male or female!

Please take a look at our current volunteering opportunities on the right hand side of the screen.

If you feel those opportunities are not for you there are other ways of getting involved with our work. We are always happy to have people helping out with:

Youth Work and Outreach

You could be helping out with sessions for young people or you could be contacting schools and colleges in order to reach out to more young people and get them interested in joining us. Knowledge of Dari or Pashto is a plus but is not essential.

Fundraising

Are you interested in supporting our work with women and youth in the UK and in Afghanistan with donations? Get in touch if you would like to fundraise on our behalf among your friends and relatives or you have an idea for a fun fundraising event!

Administration

Have you got the skills to support our office team? Would you like to develop your administrative skills? If so, get in touch!

Events

Would you like to contribute to our work but do not have much time to offer? We often need volunteers to give us a helping hand at one of our many events.

Our Allotment

Would you like to grow fruit and veg? Socialise with other people? Our allotment not only offers you the chance to get green fingered but to get involved in our food projects which provide training and opportunities to cook food. Contact us to find out about our current food projects.
