Australia Programme

The recent bush fire disaster has had an impact on volunteers choosing this really popular programme for a July 2020 start.  With rains already helping to bring this terrible situation to an end and green shoots starting to emerge in fire affected areas, Lattitude want to encourage volunteers to support Australia!

We are offering an amazing 50% discount for all February and March applicants for our July 2020 departures!!

Please contact us if you have any queries about discounts: volunteer@lattitude.org.uk


raise funds for your voluntary work on your gap year

Being a charity enables volunteers to fundraise for their placements. Many of our volunteers do and we will always recommend this. In many ways it is part of the journey and a chance for you to demonstrate your skills and commitment. Many volunteers raise all the money they need this way, some in just one day / event! Others use it to support the savings from work or financial support they receive from their family and friends. Don’t forget, if you wish to fundraise, open up a JustGiving account – it is then very easy for those helping you to give you an extra 20% through GiftAid (as long as they are a UK tax payer).

Bursary Scheme for UK Nationals

We are committed to making volunteering overseas as accessible as possible to young people. We sometimes have funds available to help certain volunteers with their Lattitude Fees.  We promote opportunties here so watch this space!  (As a UK registered Charity, this is only available to UK Nationals.)
