Volunteer

We exist for one reason – to grant magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. It's what we do. And we couldn't do it without the support of our incredible volunteers.

We were started by volunteers in 1986 – and volunteers are still at the heart of what we do today. By volunteering with us you'll become a vital part of the biggest wishgranting organisation in the world. And you'll be making a real difference to the lives of desperately ill children – and their families – across the UK. You'll also be developing your skills, meeting new people, and having bags of fun!

There are two ways you can volunteer with us. You can apply for one of our volunteer roles we're recruiting for. Or, if you haven't got the time to volunteer regularly and would prefer a more casual role, take a look at our one-off volunteering opportunities. From promoting Make-A-Wish in your local community to cheering on runners at events, there's lots to get involved with.
