Volunteering for SeeSaw

Here at SeeSaw we value our volunteers as they are essential in helping us support children and young people experiencing bereavement.

SeeSaw depends on volunteers for many areas of our work.

The types of volunteers we actively need

Fundraising Volunteers – Our Fundraising Team relies on many volunteers to help with events. Some of the ways that volunteers help might include taking part in bucket collections,  stewarding runners, running a SeeSaw stall at a local event or by selling raffle tickets.


Volunteer Ambassadors – Our Volunteer Ambassadors give talks and presentations about our vital work to the community, represent SeeSaw at events and carry out cheque collections.
