Horizons currently has over 50 active volunteers who are essential to the charity, helping the children and senior instructors to make the charity work. Without its helpful and dedicated group of volunteers Horizons would find it hard to give every child the attention and support they need.

One of the great things about volunteering with Horizons is that we invest in you! Because we are an RYA recognised Training Centre with qualified Instructors, we can help you develop skills in both Powerboating and Sailing.

Skippering a Hawk 20

Volunteers come from all walks of life, getting involved after showing interest in the charity. Some of our adult volunteers actually started sailing with Horizons as children.

Safety Boat Duty

Keeping the young people safe on the water is a top priority for us. Our Safety Boats are often operated by volunteers who have been trained in-house by Horizons.

If you want to become a Horizons Volunteer, just get in touch to arrange a time to meet. We also have an Application Procedure which can be downloaded here: Recruitment Policy and Procedures You can find all the Forms etc. here.

Volunteers perform many different roles at Horizons not just helping with the sailing side. The Friends of Horizons help with other aspects including fundraising, minibus driving and maintenance, and bring a whole range of skills to the charity, enabling it to improve and result in a better experience for the children taking part. You could also help us with Fundraising.
