SSNAP’s success owes a great deal to its dedicated team of more than 100 volunteers. We aim to make volunteering a fulfilling experience for those whose generosity helps SSNAP events run so successfully.


Our volunteers are a committed group and many return year on year. Give it a go and discover why! Volunteers take on as much or as little as they wish, and there’s something to suit every interest.
