Can Do — volunteering for disabled people



Our Can Do project offers exciting opportunities for 16- to 35‑year-old disabled people to volunteer in their community.

Top five reasons to join Can Do!

  • learn and develop new skills
  • build self-confidence and independence
  • meet new people and make new friends
  • raise awareness on issues that are important to you
  • be more socially active in your community

We provide training, cover all expenses and offer extra support as needed. You can volunteer and combine it with study or work.

As the leading UK disability charity, we welcome applications from disabled volunteers and are happy to discuss individual support requirements.

Can Do is open to people with a long term health condition or disability, including physical, visual or hearing impairments, mental health conditions and learning disabilities like dyslexia and dyspraxia.

We are now actively piloting two younger groups in rural areas in Yorkshire and Gloucester! These new groups welcome Can Doers aged 10 to 25.



Can Do currently has projects in the following locations, with more planned in the future:

  • Bristol
  • Birmingham
  • Cardiff, Wales
  • Edinburgh
  • Gloucester
  • London
  • Manchester
  • Merseyside
  • Newcastle-upon-Tyne
  • Newport, Wales
  • Portsmouth
  • Southend-on-Sea
  • Swansea, Wales
  • Wrexham, Wales
  • Yorkshire
