Share your knowledge, develop new skills and meet new people.

As a charity Tullie House welcomes the support of volunteers from all sections of the community.  If you’re 18 years and over, a student, between jobs, retired or part-time worker there will be a way for you to get involved.  If you’d like to gain valuable work experience, develop your skills or use your time and talents to benefit Tullie House and the wider community we’d like to hear from you.

We recruit to specific roles, and we list the opportunities that are available below.  If you don’t see a role that interests you, please add your name to the mailing list at the bottom of the page to be kept up-to-date on further activities.
