Volunteering

As a charity, MKPA values the help and support of volunteers. We can offer a variety of roles for a volunteer. Currently we have volunteers helping us in the Resource Unit, sorting and bagging materials, restocking the shelves, helping with picking up resources from donor companies. We have volunteers supporting our Front Office staff, administering memberships, training bookings or helping our accounting staff. We have a number of volunteers supporting our Play Team, helping deliver play sessions.
