Sands is a volunteering organisation, and we wouldn’t exist without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, who carry out a number of vital roles to progress the aims of the charity.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact your regional Network Coordinator, who will talk you through the roles and the commitment involved, help you find the right one for you, and put you in touch with your local Group.
