We are looking for volunteer writers to join our editorial team. Successful candidates will be responsible for writing articles on how to make the world a better place, inspire a new generation of changemakers, and attract much-needed donations. 

You’ll help thousands worthy charitable organisations reach the giving public. Your stories will appear on our media platform and social accounts.

As a volunteer writer you will be assigned a range of topics to choose from by our Editor in Chief that fit into our core themes of health, environment, social services, arts & culture, equality, and giving. 

We'd be delighted to hear pitches from you. It would be a bonus if you have some expertise in one of our core themes. As long as your ideas fit in with our mission and tone of voice, the (kinder) world is your oyster.
