Volunteer for ShelterBox

Give your time

Every volunteer is instrumental in providing shelter to families after disaster, wherever they are in the world.  Whatever skills, knowledge or spare time you have, you can play a vital part in this process.

As our volunteers work with diverse groups from all over the world, a background screening may be required for some volunteer roles.

It’s an incredible feeling to be able reach out and help people on the other side of the world in what is quite possibly the worst moment of their lives. That’s why I support ShelterBox.
