Volunteer YOUR way with DEBRA's new bite-sized volunteering opportunities; quick, easy-to-manage actions that, small as they might seem, are still incredibly valuable.

In the time it takes to boil a kettle:

  • Be a social media angel: follow us on Facebook or Twitter (don't forget to share your favourite posts!), or share a link to your favourite YouTube video...
  • Watch, like and share our #FightEB stories
  • Sign up to Give as You Live and raise money for DEBRA while you shop online
  • Request a DEBRA car sticker (and use it with pride!)
  • Request a DEBRA home collection box: give your spare change a good home!

In a spare five minutes when you're out and about:

  • Pop into your local supermarket or bank and nominate DEBRA as a cause to support
  • Drop off some DEBRA leaflets to your local library or a few local businesses
  • Ask your local Estate Agents to display a poster about our FREE home collection service
  • We rely on the money raised in our shops to help fund all of our services. Help us thank our fantastic shop volunteers by dropping off a surprise box of chocolates or packet of biscuits to liven up their tea breaks

If you have the odd hour once in a while:

  • Take the opportunity to clear out your wardrobe and donate your unwanted goods to DEBRA. Or why not collect donations from your friends and family?
  • Help us make sure our shops are providing the best possible service as a DEBRA Mystery Shopper – don’t forget to tell us how it goes!
  • Be a charity shop bargain spotter: head down to your local DEBRA shop and have a browse. If you see anything you like, take a photo and share it on Facebook or Twitter. Don't forget to post it to our page too!
