Support Throughout Your Voluntary Placement

All volunteers receive the same unrivalled support from our staff before you leave home and in your chosen destination. We will work with you to find a placement that suits your level of experience.

When you arrive at your destination we will meet you from the airport and give you a comprehensive induction of your local area, including settling you in at your host family or accommodation and showing you around the area.

Once you start work we will meet regularly with you and your project supervisor, and Projects Abroad staff are always available throughout your stay.

Amy Campbell, Medicine & Healthcare volunteer in China"I was lucky to have seen some diseases that are no longer prevalent in the western world such as a rheumatic aortic valve. I also observed a heart biopsy, repair of a deficient mitral valve and open heart surgery to repair an overriding aorta caused by the patient’s Marfan’s syndrome; all of which were truly fascinating and will stay with me forever."
