You are here: Be Part of the Action

Give your time

Every volunteer is instrumental in providing shelter to families after disaster, wherever they are in the world.

Whatever skills, knowledge or spare time you have, you can play a vital part in this process. All we need is your passion.

If you don't see a role below that fits in with your skills and availablility, think big and get in touch anyway - we may have something else that suits you.



It’s an incredible feeling to be able to reach out and help people on the other side of the world in what is quite possibly the worst moment of their lives. That’s why I support ShelterBox.
