Students and volunteers

Plumtree values its partnerships with the Universities in our region, and we regularly offer placements to students under the supervision of our professional team.

Work experience placements for students from local secondary schools are sometimes available, where there is a particular interest in the work that we do.

Plumtree is a busy organisation and our wonderful volunteers assist us in a variety of ways. Some attend weekly: others are available at peak times, or when their own busy lives allow. Volunteers are offered an induction and support from a member of the team. If you have a particular interest or skill and would like to talk about volunteering, we would be glad to hear from you.

Volunteers must be 18 years or older. You will need a verifiable Working With Children Registration number (issued through the RTA). You will also be subject to a National Police Certificate Clearance.

For all enquiries regarding student placement and volunteering, please contact us by phone or email.
