    At PATA we understand the value of volunteering – most of our own team have gained valuable skills and knowledge through it. We therefore recognise the immense opportunities for personal and professional development that can be gained through commitment to voluntary work and activities.

    At PATA we always welcome volunteers into our community. We have a broad range of work to fit existing skills or to help develop new skills – from data handling and social media to getting your hands dirty in a PATA managed playgroup. If you are interested in becoming a PATA volunteer please contact us.

    We regularly offer training opportunities to our volunteers to ensure they have the skills and confidence to carry out their duties.
