Volunteer for Make-A-Wish UK

Your time grants wishes

Every child deserves to wish for more than a life defined by illness, and they need your time to help make their wishes come true. Even just 30 minutes a week of your time will have a profound impact on our ability to grant wishes sooner. It means that children who may not have long left to live will have the opportunity to make memories that the family can cherish forever, before it’s too late.

From the moment that you sign up to donate your time to us as a Wish Maker, we take you on an engaging learning and development journey through our mobile volunteering app, allowing you to develop new skills and connect with volunteers across the UK. Most importantly, we connect you to the children near you that are waiting right now for their wishes to be granted, and empower and enable you to help us deliver every part of their Wish Journey. Your time can grant wishes.
