We're always keen for amazing people to share their time with us and volunteer at our centres.

We have an active volunteering programme, with over 250 volunteers working alongside our practitioners in a range of client-facing, gardening, and administrative roles across our three sites (London, Reading and Birmingham).

We simply wouldn't be able to function without these wonderful people! You can find out more about why people volunteer at Thrive in our research report.

Importance Notice

Our regional centres are closed and we have had to suspend our client programmes, including most of our volunteering work. We are putting in some plans at the minute so that we can look at re-introducing staff, volunteers and clients sometime over the next few months.

If you'd like to register your interest in volunteering, please complete our form and we'll be in touch in the future when we are ready to get back up and running with volunteer recruitment. Please bear with us as we're receiving lots of enquiries!

Corporate volunteering

Leave the world of work for a rewarding and fun day in our gardens! It is so rewarding and fulfilling to help play a part in making a positive difference to the lives of people living with disabilities or ill health.

Don't take our word for how much people enjoy giving their time to us here at Thrive - hear from some of those who volunteer at our centres and gardens in their own words below.

Thrive’s volunteers are the backbone of the charity. Many go beyond what is expected of them, supporting events and activities in the evening and at weekends or going that extra mile in supporting disabled people and of course baking cakes!
