Volunteers have been at the heart of SKT Welfare since its inception 10 years ago. 

Their unrelenting enthusiasm and hard work arising from their compassion towards humanity is what has propelled the charity’s fundraising efforts to such success, and allowed it to make a lasting impact on the many lives that their efforts touch. 

Volunteerism is the glue that binds people with their surroundings and the global community, through which SKT Welfare is breaking down barriers between individuals around the world. 

There are several volunteering opportunities to get involved with SKT Welfare, in-office volunteering, organizing collections, events, challenges and even to directly experience aid delivery via their Volunteer Abroad (deployment) programme. 

Volunteer Abroad and be the change (Deployment)

SKT welfare has several years experience in arranging and creating a fulfilling experience. Many of the volunteers have returned multiple times.

It is a life-changing experience! Enabling you to truly understand the issues faced by refugees and the most vulnerable in Turkey with Syrian refugees, Bangladesh with Rohingya Refugees and Pakistan.

“I fundraised through organising events, called on friends and family, I hit my target just in time to go on deployment to Bangladesh. I had seen the plight of the Rohingya refugees on TV and had wanted to help first hand on the ground. 

This was my opportunity to make a difference. 

On my deployment to Bangladesh I was not expecting to see that amount of vulnerable people who were in dire need of help. I will never forget the look on a ladies face when I ran out of food to give, I emptied my pockets and made a promise to myself I would go back. And so I did it again. 

I would recommend SKT Welfare’s deployment program, it is well organised, you feel safe, and that you are making a difference.”
