Animal Shelter

All animal lovers out there will know how much aid and assistance to such centres need to care for rescued animals of all kinds. There are various ways you can help, from answering the phone, doing some admin or helping to clean up.

Clinical trials

Do you want to help human progress in the field of medical technology and health? If the current pandemic has inspired you to give back, participating in a clinical trial may be right up your street. Often trials seek healthy adults to give up a few weeks of their time to attend the clinic and receive some kind of treatment that is safe. The participants were very well looked after, and most trials offer financial compensation to be involved.

Homeless shelter

Soup kitchens and other services operate in all the major cities, so why not spend time raising funds or distributing hot food for your local homeless charity. If you enjoy cooking, meeting new people and taking care of the vulnerable members of society, then this could be a good opportunity to make a real difference.
