Volunteer

Optimized-sarah with coco stall-team coco vest"Every idea that you have is worth trying, even if it is something new or different.  If someone achieves something great in the COCO office, you feel like a part of something big, because everyone is so personally involved." - Charlotte, past COCO volunteer.

We're not sure quite where we would be without our wonderful volunteers. We rely heavily on volunteers for tasks relating to our overseas programmes, fundraising and data administration.

We are looking for volunteers who can help for a minimum of 4 hours a week at our office in Newcastle. As well as being a huge help to us, placements are also a great way for you to enhance your skills, boost your CV and develop contacts in international development.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill our Volunteer Application Form.

Volunteer Overseas

In exceptional circumstances, COCO offers overseas volunteering placements. Such placements tend to be for skilled researchers or teachers. If you're interested in finding out more, please contact brad@coco.org.uk.
