Being a volunteer is a great way to make use of spare time and help other people. It’s also a great way to gain valuable experience and it can enhance your CV or your university application.

At Chailey Heritage Foundation, volunteers help to support staff in their work with the young people, allowing them more time to use their trained skills. In this way, voluntary help can considerably enrich the lives of the young people, whether at school, on outings, in the residential bungalows, in our Life Skills Centre or even in our charity café.

One thing is certain: all Chailey Heritage volunteers are extremely valued and the generosity they offer in giving their time really makes a difference!
