At BB children and young people get invloved in a huge range of exciting activites and adventures, from first aid, abseiling, circus skills, and much more.  There's also opportunities to get involved in international work, community action projects, camping and trying out new sports.

As a volunteer you can take an active part in some of these fun and exciting activities.  Or you can simply help organise activities with the children and young people.


BB changes lives

Experience tells us that BB changes children and young people's lives, so why not get involved and play your part.

BB provides opportunities for children and young people to:

  • have fun
  • play games and sport
  • learn new skills
  • find out about the Christian Faith 
  • have new experiences
  • go on a residential (Camp or Holiday) 
  • and engage with friends


BB changes Volunteers' lives

As a volunteer you will get a great sense of satisfaction from watching the children and young people develop their confidence and skills, as well as have lots of fun.  In addition, working to improve your community will give you a huge sense of personal achievement.

As a volunteer you'll also gain from the experience by making new friends and learning new skills that you can use at work or put on a CV.

The BB will also provide you with training opportunities to build on your existing skills as well as support guidance in your role.


What could you do in the time you have? 

There are many ways of helping out to suit people with different interests and lifestyles.  If you are short of time or are unsure if BB is for you, why not give it a go.  Whether you can give an hour a month, or volunteer every week, then we have a role that is just for you.
