A Volunteer at our Christmas party

At InterAct we deliver support where it is needed most – in the heart of the community – and volunteers are crucial to the work we do. 

We offer a range of opportunities for volunteers to make a real difference in the lives of young people, young adults, individuals and families living in Essex who face social disadvantage, disability and isolation.

We offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities - find your one now.

Volunteer Application process

Volunteers choose to join InterAct for many reasons: because they would like to give back to their local community, support something they believe in, develop new skills & experience, or establish new friendships. This can be challenging at times, but it’s also extremely rewarding, and members of our staff team are always available to help our volunteers to help those we support.

I love to make a difference by being there as support, to enable the children and adults to have a more independent and confident life… doing something to help as I get satisfaction from helping others.
