Support events and fundraising

Could you be the loudest, proudest cheerer on the course?

Your cheers and enthusiasm at challenge events like the London Marathon will keep people going to the finish line. Have fun, soak up the atmosphere and make a real difference. Plus, you will get some of the best viewing spots on the course!

I gave out a lot of energy, but really got a lot back. We could see straight away that we were really helping, as the runners smiled back and gave us a high-five.

Not up for cheering? You can help make one of our fundraising events like Joke for Scope a real success. You could welcome guests and gain experience of managing an event.

Or maybe you’re a budding photographer or video maker and want to practise your skills? However you help us, events are a great way to volunteer on a one-off basis.

Support us in our office teams

Want to experience working as part of a team in our office? As you help us, we will help you develop your skills and gain great experience for your CV. All while working in an area that excites you. Support our fundraising events, involve yourself with our influencing work or help with some vital admin.

Not able to make the commute? We are flexible. You can help out from home in a way that works for you.

Volunteering was the platform for me to develop the skills to get to where I am now.
