What our volunteers say


Working at Little Lives UK is a very interesting and exciting experience. I am never doing the same thing each day, its always something new whether it be talking with ambassadors, making new partnerships for the charity, fundraising, social media and blog writing. The atmosphere in the office is very relaxed which, in my opinion, is nice to work in a calm environment. Also, I can be flexible with my hours in the office.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoy working at the head office of Little Lives UK, I highly recommend volunteering here for any kind of business orientated work placement as well as just wanting to give something back.
