Volunteer for The Big Help Out with Crohn's & Colitis UK

We are proud to support The Big Help Out – a unique initiative which forms a part of the King’s Coronation, giving everyone an opportunity to lend a hand. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from or what you do – volunteer with us and you can make a difference to those affected by Crohn's and Colitis.

Help us do something amazing.

We're looking for new volunteers as we join many other organisations in marking The King’s Coronation, encouraging you to find out more about us and the many ways you can make a difference to those affected by the conditions. We have what you need to be able to lend a hand and make a change, by becoming one of the magnificent volunteers who already make such a difference to this community.

Volunteering is linked to better physical, mental and emotional health.

Lend a hand. Make a change.

We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds and walks of life. You don’t need to have been through a particular life experience or indeed have experience of the conditions, (it is of course welcome). We just ask that you are open-minded, enthusiastic and wanting to help. You can choose how much time you give and we'll give you all the training and support you need.

Whoever you are and however you choose to volunteer, you’ll be part of a supportive community coming together to improve the lives of those affected by Crohn's and Colitis.

Our volunteers make what we do possible.

It's a great way to gain new skills, knowledge and experience or make the most of existing ones; gain confidence and improve your self esteem; it's good for you; you'll meet new people; maybe even be trying something new - all whilst giving something back and making a difference to those affected by Crohn’s and Colitis.

If we all do a bit, it really will help a lot.

The Big Help out gives everyone an opportunity to lend a hand. Will you lend us yours?

Lend a hand. Make a change.
