Volunteer with Us

Volunteer with Charlie House and give the gift of time

Thousands of volunteers across the North-east of Scotland make an amazing contribution to the third sector and provide vital hours of support to charities and the families which they support. Our volunteers are an integral and invaluable part of Team Charlie House. Every single hour they contribute makes a difference to the babies, children, young people and families we support.

As we develop our range of services and fundraising to support more families across the region, we are looking to expand our team of Charlie House volunteers. Some of our volunteers gift an occasional hour or two, some a whole day, and some make a regular commitment every week or month. We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities available for each and every individual, based on their available time. These opportunities include:

Fundraising & Event Volunteers

Help us raise funds and awareness for Charlie House. We are always looking for supporters to help set up and run events, marshall races, cheer on our fundraisers at runs and cycles, sell our raffle tickets and merchandise, help with a bucket collection and help us get our orange collection cans out and about. You could be the face of Charlie House – representing us at cheque presentations or attending and giving talks to community groups.

Children & Family Activity Volunteers

Help us give families the opportunity to meet each other, have fun and make precious memories. We are looking for a small team to support our wide range of family activities, coffee mornings, siblings’ groups and extra activities during the school holidays.

ReCHarge Café Volunteers

Help us in our café in Bon Accord, where customers pay what they think it is worth and all profits come directly to Charlie House. We are looking for volunteers to join the café team on a rota basis, helping ensure our customers have a welcoming and positive café experience.

And there’s more

Volunteers give their time in many different ways including office support, distributing our newsletter, deliveries and collections, and being our mascot Charlie Dog or his guide. Our volunteer opportunities are endless and can be tailored to you and your availability. If you have an interest or skill you think would help Charlie House, we would love to hear from you.

Why volunteer with Charlie House?

We can offer the opportunity to use your skills, energy and enthusiasm to support Charlie House through a range of flexible regular and ad-hoc volunteering opportunities. You will have ongoing support and training relevant to your volunteering role, as well as an opportunity to learn new skills. Volunteering with Charlie House will give you the chance to meet new people and, above all, have fun.

Lynne, Charlie House Volunteer:“I love wearing my volunteering hat for Charlie House, it means a lot to me to be a small part of this network and to be doing something meaningful for so many people. I volunteer at ReCHarge Café one day per week and I also do other things for Charlie House on occasion. I enjoy chatting to new customers and telling them what their money will support, and I also enjoy welcoming a Charlie House family into the café from time to time. It’s lovely when someone comes in and says they know of someone who is supported by Charlie House and they have come in specifically to support the café. Volunteers can help in so many ways at Charlie House and there is something for everyone to get involved with. Whether you can manage term-time, weekends or evenings, you are made to feel valued. I’m proud to be part of the Charlie House team.”
