Volunteering for YWCA Yorkshire

YWCA Yorkshire offers a range of volunteering opportunities to include fundraising, working in our highly successful charity shop, or engaging in direct work with our clients. Volunteering is a great way of meeting new people, learning new skills and improving your employment prospects whilst donating your time and skills to a good cause. Many of our volunteer roles do not require any experience or specialist skills, and we will provide all the training and information that you need. All we require for the majority of our roles is your time, energy and enthusiasm. Volunteers receive a thorough induction and will be given training and support when joining the charity. If you are interested in volunteering for YWCA Yorkshire, please download a Volunteer  application form here and email this to louise.dack@ywcayorkshire.org.uk.
