Volunteering for ABC

ABC is run entirely by volunteers. None of us get paid for our work with ABC - we’re motivated by simply wanting to help.
If you’ve got time and energy to spare, we’d love to have you on the crew.  click here for volunteer form.

Ways you can help.

Helping out at the hub - From staffing the free shop, being on hand to answer enquiries, or doing odd jobs to keep the place ship shape, the needs and opportunities at our Redland base are constantly evolving. Get in touch if you’re interested in occasional or regular volunteering at the Hub.

Sorting aid - the hub is now set up to collect and sort aid for us to distribute to camps in Europe. Come and help us sort the aid into manageable loads to distribute on the ground.

Driving aid to France - we have a big van and plan to make a minimum of one drop a month to people living on the streets of France. If you have a few days free, there is little better you could do than driving a van of blankets and coats to cold people.

Hold a fundraiser - Any activity can be turned into a fundraiser. 
If you‘ve got an idea or want inspiration, let us know and we can help you with organising and fundraising packs.  Here are a few ideas….

In a band? 
Put on a gig! 

Work in an office? 
Have a whip round. 

Feeling sporty?
Do a sponsored run,  yoga marathon, Tough Mudder or any other activity for the cause.

Social butterfly? 
Host a quiz night, party or cake sale.
