Volunteers are an important and integral part of our charity and many services could not be delivered, locally or nationally, without a committed and active volunteer base. We provide opportunities for many different types of volunteering experience from supporting a local club, to working with children at one of our national events, to sitting on our Board of Trustees.
Information and Advice Volunteer
We run a successful online helpline giving advice to parents, carers, schools and professionals. All of our volunteers receive appropriate training and volunteer for 2-3 hours per week.

Board of Trustees
As a charity we have a Board of Trustees that oversees the work of the organisation. They meet three times a year, usually at Central Office in Milton Keynes, as well as attending a strategy away day and the the Annual General Meeting in October, which is usually held as part of the BIG Family Weekend.
Our BIG national events would simply not be possible without the support of volunteers registering families, helping in the children’s activities, serving refreshments, assisting with parking and a multitude of other tasks. Check our Events Diary for the next BIG events.
Central Office Administration
Potential Plus UK supports thousands of more able children and young people each year and our internship Programme is another way of providing exciting opportunities for our young graduates or gap year students.
We provide a brilliant opportunity for you to work for a charity, gain new skills, meet new people and be able to put the valuable experience and training you gain on your CV to make you stand out from the other candidates when you apply for a job in the future.
It is also a chance to put something back into society in an area of charity work which is very rewarding, working with children and their families. Click here to find out more.
