International Youth Volunteering Programme (IYVP)

Volunteering with British Red Cross IYVP

The British Red Cross seeks to support those in crisis, either in the UK or abroad. The International Youth Volunteering Programme (IYVP) offers young people aged 18-30 residing in the UK the chance to volunteer overseas in another European country for eight to twelve months.

As part of the European Solidarity Corps (EuSC) scheme, all IYVP placements have a community focus, spanning a wide range of different services. All of our placements are fully funded, with travel, accommodation, health insurance costs all covered and volunteers receive a small monthly allowance to cover additional expenses.

Opportunities to Volunteer with British Red Cross

This is the perfect opportunity for those interested in gaining valuable skills, having new experiences and giving back to the community.

Experience and fluency in the language are not requirements, although the placements can be challenging and require adaptability and resilience. We’re particularly keen to hear from young people who are passionate about the work but may not otherwise have the opportunity to volunteer overseas.
