We are looking for people from all military ranks, backgrounds and experience, Defence civilians and ex-Service personnel to become volunteers.
Being a Volunteer
Who do we look for?
As a FAB volunteer you will be at the heart of the holidays providing mentoring support, encouragement or just a sympathetic ear. Don’t worry we will train and support you throughout the experience. We are looking for people of all military ranks, backgrounds and experience. Defence civilians and ex-Service personnel to become volunteers. You do not need any previous experience to become a volunteer. We are ultimately looking for good listeners, people with enthusiasm for the project, and those with a willingness to be a friend or mentor to our bereaved families. Throughout the camps, you will be supported by a bereavement support office who is trained in bereavement counselling for young children. You will also be surrounded by experienced volunteers who return year after year.
All volunteers, both new and returning must attend training before every camp. This is mandated, and if you are not able to attend the training session, sadly we will not be able to accept your application for this year. This is a great opportunity to meet old and new volunteers and really understand what the camps are all about.
The training dates for 2024 are confirmed as 22 – 24 May 2024 at RAF Northolt,
There is a get involved tab on the website where volunteers can register their interest.
