Rett UK depends on over 50 volunteers to carry out the work needed to support our Rett community. Just a few hours from you can make a big difference to our families.
Volunteering is a great way to give something back and can be hugely rewarding. It’s also a great opportunity to meet new people as well as to gain new skills and experience – something that can be particularly beneficial as a way of getting back into work.
We’d love you to join us because with your time and enthusiasm and our support, we can achieve great things.
