There are plenty of opportunities to help the Fawcett team at our head offices in London, or at various events throughout the year. We are flexible: you can volunteer part time or full time and fit around childcare, school runs or education days. We will try to fit the opportunity to your skills and interests as far as possible. 

At the moment, we are particularly in need of:

Photographers and videographers to help at our events and produce material for our website
Fundraisers to help us reach out to our members via telephone

Don't worry if you're not able to volunteer in these areas - we'd still like to hear from you! 

Why volunteer?

Our volunteering opportunities cover a wide range of activities; from helping in our busy office with campaigns and blogs, to running our stall at events. There are lots of benefits to volunteering for Fawcett, including:

  • The chance to be a part of our long history fighting for women's rights
  • Opportunities to meet like-minded people who believe in gender equality
  • Working with a small and friendly team, doing meaningful work on projects and events that most interest you
  • Free entry to Fawcett events, and reimbursed lunch and travel costs

Here's what some of our former volunteers said about their experiences:

"I volunteered for Fawcett's Policy and Insight team during the summer of my second year of university. I felt very welcomed and supported by the Fawcett team, who were happy to teach and mentor me during my time there. Perhaps the most inspiring thing that I took away from the experience was meeting so many people who are passionate and committed to feminism and to see that fighting for equality can become your job!" -Severija

"Volunteering at the Fawcett Society has been an awesome experience – I’ve contributed to some really meaningful pieces of work, been taught new skills and got to work with the most incredible people in a fun and supportive atmosphere." -Avril

Our volunteer places are often in high demand, so don't delay!
