Volunteering opportunities

Volunteer in the UK

From lending a hand in the London office to helping some of the UK’s top festivals run smoothly, and from spreading the word at school assemblies to cheering on our marathon runners – we’re bound to have a voluntary opportunity that’s perfect for you!

Volunteer in Australia

Volunteer in the Melbourne office, represent WaterAid at events, or help to run fundraising events.

Why we don't send volunteers to the communities we work with

We’re committed to collaborating with communities, supporting them to come up with solutions that work for them and meet their specific needs. We work closely with local partner organisations to provide specialist support and training, but it’s vital that each community is responsible for managing their own projects.

Because the places where we work are often very remote, any visit would require detailed planning and logistical coordination, using valuable staff time and resources. Out of respect for the people we work with, we don’t encourage or facilitate self-funded visits either.
