Volunteer Abroad with Original Volunteers,the UK’s leading independent provider of volunteering holidays
Original Volunteers is the UK’s leading independent volunteering specialist. Every year we send volunteers abroad to more than 100 projects across 18 countries. Our placements are ethical, flexible, low-cost and tailored to you.
We’ve helped thousands of people enjoy life-affirming experiences volunteering abroad around the globe. But don’t take our word for it, read their reviews.
We’re low cost
We are budget volunteering specialists, with projects starting from a very affordable £12.50 per week including accommodation in Cambodia or stay for free for two weeks in India. Even our most expensive animal project is only £175 per week, but that’s only because animals can cost quite a bit more to look after in feed and vets fees!
We offer volunteer placements from just one or two weeks and don’t restrict you to fixed start dates at most destinations so you can tailor your dates around your home commitments.
We offer variety
You’re fully supported
