Support Us


There are a number of ways to get involved with our work at the British Dyslexia Association (BDA). You could volunteer to be part of our Helpline team, provide administrative support to the organisation, or work on a special project run by the BDA.

If you live within easy distance of the BDA office in Bracknell and would like to volunteer, we would love to hear from you. Volunteers are an invaluable help to the BDA.

What can a volunteer expect from the BDA?

  • A clearly defined role so you know exactly what to expect from the role
  • BDA support, including a named supervisor who will offer on-going support and regular supervision
  • Appropriate training for the role
  • To have reasonable out-of-pocket expenses reimbursed
  • Insurance cover under the BDA’s Public and Employer’s Liability Cover

There may also be opportunities for those residing outside of Bracknell to work remotely.

Event volunteers: various locations

We are seeking event volunteers to support BDA events. This is an ideal opportunity for anyone with some time to spare who wants to support a good cause or someone looking to gain work experience to gain skills and experience in events.

The role will support the Communications & Relationship Manager and the Conferences and Events Manager and there are various events throughout the year.
