Help and advice on coronavirus and where to find support

Volunteer with us

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we are not currently taking on volunteers.

One of the best ways to support Porchlight during this difficult time is by making a donation. This can help our teams reach out to more people in desperate need of support.

If you would still like to volunteer, the NHS is looking for people to become NHS volunteer responders.

Why volunteer with Porchlight

Volunteering with Porchlight isn't a one-way street. All of our volunteers are offered the same training opportunities as staff. We really want to help our volunteers gain valuable experience and develop their skills.

Some of our volunteer roles may require you to have a DBS check.

Our volunteering roles can be quite flexible and we do offer some limited roles outside of working hours.


Knowing that you’ve helped people and made those personal connections is really rewarding.
