Voluntary Opportunities

Volunteers are absolutely crucial in ensuring that Blue Smile is able to provide cost-effective support to our most vulnerable children and young people. Whether volunteers are donating skills in such things as accounting, administration and decoration or giving an hour of their time to a troubled child, they are making a real difference in the lives of local pupils.

Fundraising support volunteer

Blue Smile is expanding to meet the growing need from local children. We need a volunteer to support our Fundraising Manager by helping to research, order and manage the merchandise that we use in our fundraising activities, e.g. T-shirts, balloons, pop-up stands, collecting tins, etc.

You would be flexible enough to offer help with other fundraising admin from time to time and might even like to attend an occasional event. You will have some contact with the lovely people who fundraise for us so you will be a friendly and supportive person as well as being organised and methodical. The amount of time you would volunteer would be your choice but a regular commitment would be greatly appreciated.

Blue Smile collection tin coordinators

Would you like to work as a part of a small team to oversee our network of collection boxes in shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants? You would help us raise vital funds for this expanding children's mental health charity while publicising the essential work our therapists do to improve the lives of troubled children.

The work involves keeping track of the tins via our log, making sure they are emptied reasonably regularly, counting the collection and returning it to the office or to the bank and sending a thank you certificate to the premises owner or manager. You would be given support by our team working in the office and, as this is a new role, we could discuss with you how best it could work to make sure that it suits you. We depend upon donations, great and small, so this is a vital volunteering role, which could also be very satisfying and fun for 2-3 friends. The amount of time you would volunteer would be your choice but a regular commitment would be greatly appreciated.
