We're changing the world and you can be part of it.

At MAG, we’re proud to work with a community of amazing volunteers – and we’d love you to join us.

From helping out in our annual Thankathon to cheering on our marathon runners, we have a whole host of opportunities available for you. You'll meet like-minded people, develop new skills and gain valuable experience.

Whatever you decide to do, you’ll be joining a movement committed to saving lives and building safer futures.

Why volunteer?

As part of MAG's volunteer community, you’ll play a vital role in helping to make life safer for communities affected by war and violence. And we’re convinced that you’ll be enriched in return.

Inspire others

Share your passion and enthusiasm to help create a safer future for everyone. Whether you’re joining MAG as a volunteer speaker or helping us out at our Manchester headquarters, your voice will encourage support for our work.

Develop your skills

Our volunteer roles offer an opportunity to develop your skills and gain valuable experience that could help you in the workplace. You could hone your public speaking, flex your organisational ability or gain insight into the daily running of a busy charity.

Meet new people

Volunteering is a great way to socialise and meet new people, both within your community and with other volunteers. We’re developing a network of friends, and we want you to be part of it.

We’ll invest in you

If you volunteer for MAG, whatever your role, we’ll ensure that you receive training and our full support, to make sure you really get the most out of your time with us. We know your time is valuable and we want you to feel like every second, you’re truly making a difference.

I began to volunteer with MAG as I was disgusted that people, particularly children, continue to be killed and wounded at the rate of one person every hour by these hideous, invisible weapons. I enjoy being able to raise awareness of MAG’s important work - let us all work for a mine-free world by 2025.

Become a MAG Network Speaker

Could you represent and promote the work of MAG within your local community?

Volunteer speakers will use their skills and passion to encourage engagement and support for MAG. This could involve a 20 minute presentation to a rotary club, a school assembly or an informal chat and cup of tea with local businesses or churches to ask for their support.

Becoming a MAG Network Speaker is a rewarding opportunity to make a difference, encouraging public awareness of landmine issues, whilst meeting new people and strengthening valuable skills. You’d be supported by the team in HQ, who would be on hand to deliver training and guidance to ensure you have a positive experience with MAG.

You would be instrumental in helping to grow support for MAG at a grassroots level and establish vital connections with communities around the UK.
