FAQs about charity volunteering with World Vision

  1. Are World Vision events still happening?

    Due to the current UK epidemic of coronavirus and recent government advice, most events have been cancelled or postponed.

    You can still register to receive updates of artist events and Christian festivals you could volunteer for in the future.

  2. What happens when I apply to volunteer?

    Registering doesn’t sign you up for anything - but you'll be able to see all our volunteer opportunities with more about each event (date, place, etc.) and what's expected. It'll also allow us to email you about volunteering and when new volunteer opportunities open up (you can unsubscribe at any time).

  3. What will I be expected to do?

    Each event varies, so make sure to check the details with the organiser or online. During performances, you’ll be asked to sign up supporters who want to sponsor a child. 

    At Christian festivals, we usually aim to create fun ways to show how supporters can transform the lives of the most vulnerable children - you could be helping with the stand, meeting people and talking about World Vision’s work.

  4. What skills or experience do I need?

    You don’t need any specific skills or experience to volunteer but it’s best if you like talking and interacting with people. Having said that, if this is a skill you want to develop and you’re enthusiastic and ready to give your best, then come on board.
