We involve volunteers on a variety of placements here at Blue Cross. Whether you are looking to complete your Duke of Edinburgh award or gain useful work experience, we could help! Best of all – you’ll know your time is going towards helping the many sick and homeless pets in our care.
Duke of Edinburgh's award scheme
Do you want to make a difference to the lives of pets while completing your Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) award? Then sign up with us to complete the volunteering section of your Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh award.
Blue Cross is an approved activity provider for the volunteering section of your award. This means the volunteering opportunities we provide have been approved by the DofE scheme as meeting their standards and can count towards the achievement of your award!
We have opportunities across the UK for DofE participants to help out in our fabulous charity shops as well as some opportunities in our rehoming centres. You’ll receive all the training and support you need as well as gaining some great experience.
