Christian Aid’s vision is of a world free from poverty, and we believe that vision can be a reality if we work together.

By contributing their time and skills, our volunteers are helping to improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest people while also developing personally.

Important information

Christian Aid values diversity and welcomes applications from people from all sections of the community. We do our best to treat everyone equally.

We don’t send volunteers to work overseas. We involve volunteers from the countries that we work in. If you are interested in volunteering overseas you may find the World Service Enquiry website helpful.

We welcome volunteers from outside the UK but, unfortunately, we can’t help with travel arrangements, visas or accommodation. If you are a UK resident but are from outside the European Union, we recommend that you check the terms of your visa with the Border Agency.
