"Volunteers are the lifeblood of the ABTA and we place a very high value on volunteers’ contributions, no matter how large or small. The strength of ABTA lies in the fact that everyone who chooses to become involved does so because they have a personal understanding of the effects of a difficult birth experience." - Maria Bradshaw, Volunteer Manager

Volunteering is a positive way to support ABTA’s work and people affected by birth-related trauma. Enthusiasm and a desire to help are the only qualifications you need.

Volunteering provides opportunities to:

  • make a difference
  • share skills and experience
  • learn new skills
  • gain valuable work experience
  • meet people and make new friends
  • increase your confidence and self-esteem
