Flexible - There are no set dates or times. Volunteering is either home based or in your local community and can be carried out whenever fits around your own schedule. There is no set time commitment, but roughly 4-6 hours a month is average for this role, depending on how involved you can be.
About the Role
Making change for animals happens in many different ways. Protesting and public outreach is a powerful engagement tool, but sometimes we also need to combine this with talking directly to people in power - your local decision makers. As a Campaign & Lobbying Volunteer, you will combine these 2 campaigning tools to fight for legislative change. By building relationships with your local politicians, whilst also delivering outreach and awareness raising events locally, you will inspire your local MP to take action for the animals. And - you don't need to be an expert on politics. We will give you everything you need, and ultimately this about raising an issue to your MP as a concerned member of their constituency. It's their job to listen to you!
If you envisage a world free from animal suffering, and you want to play your part in making history for animals, we'd love for you to join our volunteer community.
This role is remotely accessible and focused on local action near where you’re based. No prior experience is required, just a passion and drive to make a difference, training and ongoing support provided. There is no set time commitment, but roughly 4-6 hours a month is average for this role, depending on how involved you can be.
