We’re always looking for people who share our passion to see disadvantaged communities changed for good through the service of young people.
Join us as live-in volunteers, mentors and other volunteers.
See below for details about each role, and email us with your questions or if you’re interested in joining our team.


Live-in volunteers move house to live in the estates we are passionate about, in order to have the biggest impact.

Live-in volunteers are expected to:

– Commit to moving into the area for a minimum of three years
– Live intentionally in the estate and be available to those within it
– Give four to six hours a week to serve young people
– Play an active part in the local church

You’ll receive full training and ongoing support and be given a fantastic opportunity to live out your passion and serve young people in the area.


Since 2010, Thrive have given scores of young people a mentor to help them unlock their potential.

But there are more young people who could be helped to reach their goals with a positive role model in their lives.

Could you be the person to make an important difference in a young person’s life? We’ll give you the training and skills to be great at it. All we ask is that you can commit to meeting with a young person once a week for a year. We don’t think they deserve any less.

Do you have an hour and a half a week to give to to help run activities with young people, like baking or gardening? We can’t run many of our programmes without volunteers.

Or are your skills better suited to an office environment? We’re always on the lookout for skilled administrators who can ensure that things run smoothly.

Drop us a line to find out how your skills and passions match with opportunities to invest in young people.


If you’re a student youth worker who wants to specialise in urban areas, we would love to discuss potential placement opportunities with you. Get in touch!

To register your interest for any of these opportunities, or to arrange an informal chat, email We can’t wait to talk with you!

“Adam's been great support to AJ because his Dad passed away ... This for me is really good knowing that AJ has got somebody that he can chill out with, talk to, and who can support him when I'm not around.”
