Help us make a difference
Volunteers are an essential part of The Daimler Foundation. From assisting the coaches to help leading a pony, you can help support the foundation and the work we undertake in so many different ways. Whatever skills you can bring, giving your time to work with the foundation will mean that more people can enjoy the benefit and enjoyment of being around horses.
Volunteering is rewarding and fulfilling and we offering training to enhance the experience. Volunteering has an important role to play in addressing concerns around loneliness, mental health, social skills and wellbeing. It offers opportunities to gain confidence, acquire new skills and knowledge.
Volunteering is an active experience that delivers many physical health benefits too.
We welcome volunteers of 12 and over, there is no upper age limit and we need a wide range of skills – not just with horses. We are a diverse organisation and we are at our best when we bring together people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
