Resources to support your volunteering activites

We really appreciate our Macmillan volunteers, and we want to ensure you benefit too.

Whether it's self development, supporting others or social media, we have a range of resources to help you in your role.

New to volunteering? Take a look at the Volunteer induction.

The induction gives you background information about Macmillan: who we are, where we came from and what we do. You'll find out the type of opportunities available. You'll also hear what to expect from those already involved.

Want to hone your skills? Pick an item from Personal Development.

A selection of articles, learning guides and videos on a range of topics. Learn how to improve your communication skills, manage your time effectively, solve problems and make changes in your daily life. There are sections on creativity, energy and wellbeing as well. It's a great opportunity to build on what you've learned and experienced as a volunteer.

Further resources useful to volunteers are collected in these stacks:
