Supporting those who need it most



From BCM's foundation in 1889, volunteers have played a vital role in the life of the Mission and this remains true today. In fact this is an expanding area of our work and the contribution made by our volunteers helps us with all areas of our work.

Why Volunteer with BCM?

  • To give something back
  • To meet new people
  • To share a skill/learn new ones
  • Be part of a team
  • To help others
  • To help with career development
  • Something different from the average 9 to 5
  • You have a few hours to spare
  • A sense of achievement

Whatever your reason and however small your commitment, YOU CAN REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

We need volunteers who would be willing to give up a little bit of their time.  There are many ways you could help.

Some examples include:

  • Befriending older people
  • Fundraising
  • Sorting and packing Christmas presents for children in the community
  • Supporting the Community Services Manager

Or perhaps you have an idea of how you would like to help?  Please let us know.

BCM’s volunteers underpin and support all activities within our Community Services Programme.  Without their valuable time and support, we could not carry out this work which is crucial to helping so many people in Northern Ireland.

BCM volunteers were one of the first volunteer groups to win the Queens Award for Volunteering in 2005.

BCM has held the Investors in Volunteers Award since 2006 and was one of the first agencies to achieve this in Northern Ireland.
