Volunteering with All-Aboard!

** Unfortunately we do not have any vacancies **

There is no doubt that the stretch of water in the heart of Bristol is a super place to be with like minded people offering their help and support to enable people, to access the challenging sport of sailing and now canoeing and rowing.

Being a volunteer with All-Aboard! is a fantastic experience, they are what make our organisation the success that it is, we could not function without them. From answering the phone, helping to rig and maintain  boats to taking disabled users out onto the water sailing, canoeing or in the power boats, it is rewarding and great fun.

What to expect when volunteering for All-Aboard!

When we receive your application we will invite you down to meet us and join in a session which interests you. We will ask you to provide us with a referee and to fill in a DBS form.  Once we have had a chat with you and worked out what you would like to gain from volunteering with us we will “buddy” you up with another volunteer  for sessions and start you on some training.  We will ask you to log your volunteer hours whenever you attend and offer you the opportunity to take part in our volunteer log book scheme. This allows you to be rewarded for every 48 hours of volunteering by an opportunity to attend a 6 hour (1 day) in-house training course of your choice, run by All-Aboard Watersports. Examples of courses on offer are: RYA Level 1 Sailing, Learn to Row Stage 1, British Canoeing 1 Star Course, RYA Powerboat Level 1. For 2 day courses, you will either be able to save up your hours, or pay the difference.

Come and join our team. We look forward to hearing from you
