People Can make a difference Kitemark logo

Our volunteers tell us they’ve gained confidence, skills and new friendships through their experience. In fact, our Bradford-based Luv2meetU project was recently awarded the ‘People Can’ kitemark in recognition of the positive experience it provides to volunteers.

Join us today and discover how volunteering can change lives – including yours. Get in touch to find out more: 01274 655956 or volunteering@hft.org.uk.

Personal and career development

Volunteering is a great way to develop new skills, build your self-confidence, or help your career prospects. Some of our volunteers come to us because they want to completely change direction in their careers and get experience of a new type of job.

Training and development

We provide on the job training for our volunteering roles. You may also have the opportunity to get a volunteering accreditation with schemes like the Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme.
