COCO Volunteers

"I've really enjoyed working at COCO, and have been really proud and happy to have been able to help out with some of COCO's projects. I'm still quite chuffed that I was able to be so involved in finding a trekking company for the Everest base camp trek. I also wanted to say thank you for being so helpful over the last two years, whenever I came to you with a problem you were always very nice and helped me sort out what needed to be done."

- Ian, former volunteer

Volunteers are vital to COCO and we would be lost without them. Last year, 45 volunteers donated over 2,500 hours of their time to COCO, worth over £25,000! We simply could not do what we do without our skilled volunteers, who assist COCO with everything from data entry to social media.

Volunteers assist COCO in all aspects of the charity, from designing marketing materials for fundraising events, to social media management and communications, or partnership administration and in-depth research projects. We offer total flexibility - whether you are able to offer just one or two hours a week, or you would like a full-time placement to enhance your CV, we'd love to hear from you.
