Volunteer with Escape

We are deeply committed to providing meaningful volunteering opportunities to people across Warwickshire.

We support a range of volunteer placements, from baking cakes for our café to supporting our participants during our community art projects. There really is something for everyone!

Our volunteers are our life-blood and we simply couldn’t exist without them.

We’ll let our volunteers tell you in their own words why they enjoy volunteering with Escape and why you should do the same:

"It’s a lovely place to work; there’s great company, it’s great for relieving stress, we have great fun times and there’s always great opportunities to dress up!"

Paul Mitchell, Volunteer Gardener, Front of House Host & One to One Participant Support

"I love volunteering with Escape. It’s so rewarding to help those who help others."

Phil Spinks, Volunteer Researcher

"The staff and other volunteers are a very friendly bunch and always welcoming. You have to be prepared to help stick, cut, paint and produce fantastic end results! Also be prepared to burst into song at any time - doesn’t matter about the quality of the singing! To help Escape is very worthwhile time spent"

Stella Burton, One to One Participant Support

"It’s that moment when you’re having so much fun, that you forget you’re volunteering to help change lives… because it’s changing yours!"

Soozy Smith, Front of House Host

"I love volunteering at Escape because everyone is so friendly and helpful! Escape has become very special to me and I love to see the difference it makes to the people who come to take part in the things we do together. I really look forward to coming... Volunteering for Escape is very rewarding!"
