Occasionally, people tell us that they like what we’re doing, but don’t have the time, resource or skills to play an active part in the running of Hope GB. As we’re a voluntary organisation, we understand all too well how challenging it can be to get involved. We don’t currently run any centralized fundraising campaigns, but do welcome individual donations. Your gift –however small – will help us continue to provide support to the families and carers of people throughout Wales, who so desperately need it.
Drop us a note at email@example.com for more information on how to make a donation. Or use the form below to let us know how much you would like to donate.
As part of our ongoing development, we’re looking for a number of committed volunteers with the energy and willingness to help us develop. Vacancies change from time to time, but we would like to hear from you if you have strong administration skills, database or web development expertise, or perhaps the experience of working with people on the spectrum.
Whatever you have to offer, it’s worth a chat. In return for being a volunteer, we’ll give you the training to do your role and exposure to the running of a charity.
If you want to register your interest, email your CV and a covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are Volunteer Placements?
Volunteer Placements are short periods of unpaid work experience opportunities. They’re really flexible and are intended to give you a taste of a particular aspect of working with Hope GB. This can enable you to use a skill or draw on experience you already have, or can give you an insight into a future career opportunity. This flexibility also means that you don’t feel obliged to volunteer on a longer term basis. However, where possible, we do ask volunteers to complete the whole period of their placement.
Why are these on offer?
Hope GB is reliant on the input and assistance of volunteers, and we realise how valuable it is to have fresh ideas and the ongoing hands-on support needed to make our exciting plans possible. So, we really need you, and appreciate different types of help during the year.
You may wish to get involved purely because you’d like to make a contribution of your time to help the charity achieve its aims. However, employers often require relevant work experience when recruiting, so a Volunteer Placement could become an important part of your career planning.
How do I apply for a Placement?
The nature of Placements can change over time, however, we’ll always discuss significant changes with you.
If a DBS check is required, this will be noted in the Placement profile.
If you want to register your interest, email your CV and contact details to email@example.com. We’ll let you know more about applying for the volunteer programme as opportunities arise.
We never fail to be inspired by the individuals and teams that so willingly support our work. With this support, we can reach more children, young adults and families affected by autism, helping them to get the most out of life.
Could you help us too?
There’s no single way to raise money for Hope GB. You may be up for a marathon run or mountain climb or may prefer something a little less energetic. Whatever you choose, we’ll be behind you all the way
Our Fundraising Hero programme gives you hints, tips and ideas for fundraising in a way that suits your skills, interests and availability. Be as creative as you like.
Alternatively, our Fundraising Group could be just up your street if you work well as a team member. Two heads are often better than one, so we’ll give you some of the tools you need to run events, receive donations and raise our profile within the community.
Without your help, we can’t do half as much as we’d like to. Any fundraising support is valued, so please get in touch to find out more.
