BuDS has a number of current volunteering roles available, across all parts of the charity. Read on for more about these, and how to apply. If you don’t know what sort of role might suit you best, please e-mail us to express a general interest and we will arrange a no-strings informal chat.
BuDS is a working community of over 150 volunteers. This means all our work is led and managed by volunteers, mostly disabled people themselves. Our paid staff support our volunteer team, unlike most charities where the volunteers support the paid staff.
