We're looking for people who are enthusiastic and passionate about WaterAid.

Setting up a new local group is an exciting challenge. And you won't be doing it all on your own – we'll work with you to recruit volunteers and organise your first group meeting.

We can also put you in touch with other WaterAid supporters in your area and help you promote your new group on social media and in the local press.

Our local groups come in all shapes and sizes. Most groups have a core of 3-6 members who regularly meet to plan events and activities, with other volunteers helping out at events and offering support when needed.

We're always keen to grow our local groups network, so if you're interested in volunteering in one of the following roles we'd love to hear from you:

  • Cooordinator: the main point of contact with WaterAid and the person who arranges meetings and circulates actions. Check out the role description >
  • Treasurer: the person who takes responsibility for collecting and banking funds and keeping a record of any expenses. You'll also need to set up a group bank account.

No previous experience is needed but you'll need to be confident in leading group discussions and arranging meetings. We'll also provide you with coordinator training and support in managing the group, and resources to support your fundraising and awareness raising.
