Volunteer Globally

Our global volunteering programme is an amazing opportunity to work alongside families in need of a decent place to call home.

COVID-19 is impacting our families and our communities here, and around the world.

Given the continued uncertainty surrounding the impact of COVID-19 on global travel we are not currently taking registrations for our Global teams for 2021.

Whilst the timing of responses to the COVID-19 pandemic has varied, governments around the world have been consistent in calling on citizens to stay safe by staying at home.

For too many people staying home isn’t safe. 1.8 billion people worldwide live in grossly inadequate housing; often in overcrowded conditions, lacking access to water and sanitation – making them particularly vulnerable.

Our teams around the world are urgently working to implement COVID response plans to help those most in need. Learn more & donate today.
