Become a Better Start Bradford Event Volunteer

  • Does being at the heart of a busy, fun event with lots of activities for families with young children sound like your kind of thing?

  • Would you like to make a difference to the lives of local children and families?

  • Would you like to gain events experience?

If you answer yes to any of the above, we’d love you to join us as one of our event volunteer superstars!

Helping out at events are a great way of gaining skills and experience. Generally, we’d need you to:

  • Assist with set up and close of an event
  • Welcome and direct event attendees
  • Help with keeping facilities tidy
  • Assist with organising and moving equipment
  • Encourage people to have fun!

Events might range from summer street parties, to family fun days, conference style events for professionals, to our popular ‘festive fun’ events in December. We have opportunities to be involved at a one-off event or on a more regular basis.

No previous experience is required – we are just looking for friendly, reliable volunteers who love working with people and are willing to get stuck in!

Here's what some of our previous volunteers have said

Better Start Bradford really do put the community voice at the heart of everything that they do. I have never seen that level of community co-production from any other organisation.

I've gained so much confidence. Being a Community Champion has given me opportunities to try new things that a few years ago I would never have done.

I've met so many fantastic people – they often seem very different from me at first but we always find we have a lot in common.

If you want new skills to help you into employment, would like to give something back, or want to put that spare time to good use, we've got a volunteering role for you.
