Why Volunteer

Why volunteer for Histio UK?
For many, volunteering with Histio UK is a chance to do something positive to help support children, young people and adults with histiocytosis, and their families.
Volunteers enable us to do so much through raising vital funds, providing additional services and offering their own skills and expertise.

Volunteering is also a great opportunity to gain new skills, meet new people and experience working in the third sector

Supporting our volunteers
Histio UK offers an excellent volunteering experience.
Our volunteers work closely with our teams in friendly, welcoming environments and are offered high quality support, as well as training and resources relevant to their role.
This ensures our volunteers are able to benefit from the time they give, whilst helping to support children, young people and adults with histiocytosis, and their families.
