Get involved

You can get involved in all sorts of ways.

Volunteering

Volunteering can be a rewarding way to reach out to people in your local community.
All of our activities rely on the support of volunteers and the charity benefits hugely from the experience, skills and enthusiasm they bring.
Roles are rewarding, challenging and fun; volunteering is a great way to make a difference to SELFA and the experience children and young people have when they are with us. It’s also a great opportunity to learn new skills, improve your CV, build confidence, have fun and meet new people.

We recognise and appreciate the effort and commitment from our volunteers. It is important to us that all our volunteers are given meaningful roles. If you would like to volunteer, please get in touch for a chat, or complete and return the Volunteer Application Form available here.

Fundraising

Each year fundraisers go out of their way to make a difference to SELFA. Be it a bun sale or a bungee jump they invest their time and effort in so many amazing and creative ways. If you would like to fundraise for us we would love to hear from you!

Corporate Partnerships

We are always looking for businesses, large or small, that share our vision of a community where all children and young people are celebrated and know they belong.

Adopting SELFA as a charity and fundraising for us can bring many benefits to your business; it offers an opportunity to generate positive media coverage, to engage staff, to create team-building opportunities, to increase morale and the best bit… to have lots of fun!

We have many opportunities for staff to volunteer at activities and we are extremely proud that a number of volunteers we have met through partnerships feel like part of our team.

Some businesses prefer to help us in other ways, paying for specific core costs for a year or donating gifts in kind which reduce our running costs so we can spend more on children’s activities.

We are always grateful for donations and services which we can use as prizes for raffles at our fundraising events taking place throughout the year.
If you would like to support us in anyway please do get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
