Five Ways to Support Baobab

Our volunteers and supporters make it possible for us to change lives. The support and help that we receive from them takes many forms and is invaluable.

Volunteer

The Baobab Centre would not be able to do the work it does without the support of our committed volunteers who give their time and their skills so generously.  Our volunteer roles range from clinician and volunteer administrators to casework volunteers and befrienders.  Please note that we have a rigorous child protection policy and volunteers will be required to have a Disclosure and Barring Service check (police check).  Due to the amount of staff time required in ensuring our volunteers are properly inducted and supported within our small organisation, we also ask for our volunteers to try to make a commitment of being with us for at least four months. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit the volunteer page Volunteering at Baobab to view current vacancies.

Giveacar

If you are buying a new car and scrapping your one (or know someone who is planning this)  Giveacar takes all the hassle out of the process by arranging the collection of your vehicle for free, and every car is either recycled to high environmental standards or sold at auction.in return you can nominate the Baobab Centre to be the recipient of the proceeds from the scrapped car.  Go to:

Set up a fundraising event

Setting up a fundraising event for Baobab is an exciting way to support our work. Your support is greatly appreciated. No matter how big or small the sum you raise, you are making a vital difference to the young people we work with.

Supporters raising funds for us have taken part in a variety of activities including running marathons, doing bike rides or sponsored cake bakes.  Others have set up their own donations page so that guests at weddings and birthdays can donate to Baobab in lieu of presents.  

You can set up your own donation page on MyDonate, past supporters have asked wedding or birthday party guests to donate to the Baobab Centre in lieu of presents.  Go to: https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/baobabcentreforyoungsurvivorsinexile
