Making change for animals happens in many different ways. Protesting and public outreach is a powerful engagement tool, but sometimes we also need to combine this with talking directly to people in power – your local decision makers. As a Campaign & Lobbying Volunteer, you will combine these 2 campaigning tools to fight for legislative change. By building relationships with your local politicians, whilst also delivering outreach and awareness raising events locally, you will inspire your local MP to take action for the animals. And – you don’t need to be an expert on politics. We will give you everything you need, and ultimately this about raising an issue to your MP as a concerned member of their constituency. It’s their job to listen to you!

If you envisage a world free from animal suffering, and you want to play your part in making history for animals, we’d love for you to join our volunteer community. 

This role is remotely accessible and focused on local action near where you’re based. No prior experience is required, just a passion and drive to make a difference, training and ongoing support provided. There is no set time commitment, but roughly 4-6 hours a month is average for this role, depending on how involved you can be.

The Humane League UK is committed to building a diverse, equitable and inclusive team. We are an equal opportunities organisation and welcome volunteer applications from all people, regardless of their race, sex, age, religion, disability, neurodiversity, orientation, gender identity or expression.

We particularly encourage those currently under-represented in the animal movement to join our team – individuals who are Black, Indigenous or People of the Global Majority, a person who is differently abled, and people who are LGBTQIA+.

If you prefer to apply in another way, or you have alternative requirements you’d like to discuss, don’t hesitate to contact us at volunteeruk@thehumaneleague.org.uk

About The Humane League

The Humane League was founded in the US in 2005. We’ve been operating in the UK since 2016, when we hired our first campaigner. Since then, we’ve been able to take on more staff, become a registered charity, and score some incredible progress for animals.

We advocate for corporate reforms through hard-hitting animal welfare campaigns, and provide information and encouragement to help people make dietary choices that will reduce animal suffering.

None of this would be possible without our growing team of volunteers and supporters mobilising across the country. Please join us by signing up to our Fast Action Network, becoming a volunteer or making a donation today.

We are a registered charity in the UK, number 1177926.
