Volunteer Fundraising Ambassador
You'll support our work by fundraising with your friends, community, family and colleagues. This is a vital role as it helps us to reach new people, inspire new fundraising activity, and thank our supporters for the work they are doing. We'll provide ongoing support, including exciting and inspiring fundraising ideas.
This is a varied volunteer role that's well suited for anyone interested in fundraising and organising events of all sizes. You'll also have the opportunity to volunteer at events such as our World AIDS Day Walk based in Brighton and UK-wide running and challenge events.
We ask that all Volunteer Fundraising Ambassadors aim to raise a minimum of £500 in their first year in the role. All fundraising must be carried out within the most current Governments COVID-19 isolation and gathering in groups guidelines.
Terrence Higgins Trust was set up in 1982 following the death of its namesake, Terry Higgins, who was one of the very first people to die of an AIDS-related illness in the UK. As an organisation we are always aiming to ensure we are always meeting the needs of people affected by HIV and poor sexual health.
Volunteering at Terrence Higgins Trust
Today, volunteers continue to be a huge and integral part of the work that we do across the UK. Volunteers help out in most teams within the charity and many services could not be provided without their help. In 2019 alone, volunteers gave the charity over 26,500 hours of their time.
Help us build our vision of a world where people with HIV live healthy lives free from prejudice and discrimination, and good sexual health is a right and reality for all.
Anyone aged from 18 to 80 can volunteer with us as long as they fulfil the role description and meet the volunteer requirements. We’re unable to accept volunteers aged 80 or over for insurance reasons.
