Volunteer Brokers

We are unable to accept bookings from volunteering brokers

  • It is very difficult to communicate with the actual volunteers when we are going through a broker.
  • We do not charge for volunteering and do not support charging.
  • We wish to develop a relationship with the volunteering company and this is difficult when we do not know anything about the volunteers.
