Each year Child Bereavement UK is the beneficiary charity for a number of festivals and other events across the UK. We have a range of upcoming festivals and events for which we are seeking friendly, confident and approachable people to volunteer their support.

Volunteers work for timed shifts and perform a variety of jobs on the day in aid of Child Bereavement UK, details of volunteer roles can be found on individual event pages. 

In return our volunteers are able to enjoy the rest of the event for free! Volunteers will be fully briefed and supported both before and during the event by Child Bereavement UK staff.
