International Service 

It is with a mixture of pride and sadness that we share the news that, after over sixty years, International Service have made the difficult decision to close our global volunteering programmes. 


Since 1953 we have had the privilege of seeing thousands of people, of all ages, engage with volunteering opportunities to affect positive change in collaboration with communities and causes worldwide.

Regrettably, a combination of dramatic reductions to the UK’s foreign aid budget, the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, and the impact of of two years of Coronavirus restrictions on our global mobilities have left us in a position where continuing our work is no longer viable.


We are immensely proud of all that our volunteers have achieved over this time, and grateful to all of our global partners, without whom none of this would have been possible.
