Make an impact as a Seashell volunteer

Whether you’re interested in donating your time and skills, helping our students and their families, looking to gain experience of working in an environment like Seashell, or want to meet new people and have fun while you learn something new, there’s a place for you. We have a range of inclusive volunteering opportunities and a number of ways you can start volunteering with children and young people with learning disabilities.

Individual volunteering

There are opportunities for volunteers to join us during the day or evenings, any day of the week, regularly or as a one-off. We are committed to being flexible and working with you to find the best opportunity. You could get involved in a wide range of activities including administration, classroom support, events, gardening, swimming, sport and therapy.

Corporate Volunteering

If your company is looking to support a charity working on the frontline, to care for and protect very vulnerable young people we would love you to consider supporting us. A dedicated member of our team will manage and develop the relationship with your company. We will offer as much support as you need to make our partnership a true success.
