Become a volunteer

and make a difference in your local community when you join the Rennie Grove volunteering team

Could you give the gift of time?

Time is precious – the gift of time priceless. Without the time our volunteers give to support all areas of our work, we couldn’t help all the families who need us.

If you have time to give and would like to join the Rennie Grove volunteering team, we’d love to hear from you! We have a wide range of volunteer roles with varying time commitments to suit people in different circumstances.

And if you have skills you’d like to use – or new skills you’d like to learn – do get in touch. We’d love to chat with you about how we might be able to help each other.
