Advantage Africa does not send volunteers from the UK to work in Africa but you can find useful information on such opportunities from World Service Enquiry and guidelines on choosing a suitable agency from Ethical Volunteering.

We also recommend the Gap Advice website for independent advice on gap years for people of all ages. Students and researchers might also find www.devstud.org.uk of interest.

We welcome enquiries from people interested in volunteering to help with our education activities, fundraising and administration in the UK as well as our annual Christmas Gift Wrapping Service in Milton Keynes. If you would like to help us in this way please contact us.
