Volunteer for us

Every year, we support families to work through issues such as poverty, behavioural problems, health issues, problems with services and schools, relationship issues, communication breakdowns and countless other issues. We could not support these families without the dedication, commitment and passion of over 200 volunteers.

“It’s difficult to put into words how much volunteering and then working for Family Lives helped me – it was pivotal in getting me to where I am today, what with all the training and encouragement I received.”

We are looking for volunteers to help support families who are having issues in their family life. This could include bullying, mental health or family breakdown. Full training and ongoing support is given. Our helpline volunteers are a lifeline to our callers who have nowhere else to turn. 

Volunteers are vital to Family Lives and we have a wide range of opportunities available in many different areas of the country. Find out more about the different types of volunteer roles and where these are available.
