Fundraise 

Thank you so much for choosing to fundraise for Embrace. Fundraising can be a fantastic way of having some fun, whilst giving something back to a small charity. There are so many ways to fundraise! From taking part in an organised event like a 10k or half marathon, to having a bake sale, charity garage sale, or taking part in a sponsored event. The list is endless! 
 
Whatever you decide to do, Embrace can help out as much as needed – we have plenty of merchandise such as wristbands, stickers, banners, posters and collection tins available for you to borrow, and we will always try and be there at events if you would like a charity representative. 
 
There are lots of fundraising websites such as Just Giving and Local Giving that make fundraising even easier. The pages are quick and simple to set up and you don't have to worry about collecting cash and getting the money to as, as it's all done automatically!

Volunteer 

The best way to begin! Start volunteering with Embrace – we promise not only will you be giving something back, but you will be getting so much out of it too. From making friends, to learning new skills, this will help you stand out from the crowd when you apply for future university courses or other jobs. We have had many volunteers over the years, who have gone on to become teachers, doctors, physiotherapists, nurses and so on! We take volunteers from the age of 13 and there is no upper age limit. Our oldest volunteer is over 70! 
 
Once you have volunteered with us, there may be opportunities for paid roles once you have some experience. You can volunteer either with families or at playschemes or clubs; this then opens up career progression from play workers all the way to group leaders and family support assistants! There is so much scope for personal and professional development working with Embrace, so do not hesitate to get in touch
