Volunteer at a Vitalise Centre
Volunteering at a Vitalise Centre is all about helping our guests get the most out of their break.
We won’t pretend there’s not some hard work involved but it’s a fun and rewarding experience. We guarantee you'll have a memorable time and meet new people.
We offer four main kinds of volunteering opportunity at our Centres.
Most of our volunteers are residential (meaning you live at the Centre for the whole time you are volunteering with us). Residential volunteers usually help for a week or two at a time. The weeks run from Saturday to Saturday.
Long term volunteers
Vitalise have opportunities for long term volunteers. Places are limited and some restrictions may apply, but we welcome enquiries from people looking for a 6 month or longer placement. Ideal for UK students looking for a (cheap!) GAP year experience. Some European and non EEA places may be available. Please contact email@example.com for further details.
Daily or occasional volunteers
Helping in your local Vitalise Centre, on a daily basis, whenever you can, can be a tremendous support, especially when helping on the day trips and excursions. You can also help in the gardens, shops, bars, offices, or with guest support, so there is plenty of variety.
If you live within easy reach of one of our Centres and sometimes have time to spare (maybe you’re retired, or work part-time) that you’d like to put to good use then get in touch with your local centre directly and they will be happy to discuss things with you. You can find Centre details in the Our Centres section.
