About Us

Winant Clayton Volunteers is a registered UK charity which facilitates an annual exchange programme for British and American volunteers to support disadvantaged groups in London and New York. Anyone, aged 18-80+, with a desire to support those in need for eight weeks over a summer, can apply to join the programme.

We have helped many volunteers to experience challenging, exciting and fun placements in two of the most inspiring cities in the world! By taking part you'll gain great experience, develop your skills, and most of all, you'll come home with new friends and memories that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Our volunteers make a positive difference to the local communities in which they work, through motivation, hard work and enthusiasm. Living in another country for a summer gives our volunteers the opportunity to immerse themselves in a different culture and gain a unique insight into the lives of others.

A placement with a grassroots organisation can be challenging and often the work can be demanding. However, our placements offer supportive environments which enable the volunteers to overcome challenges, gain confidence and develop new skills. Please see our ‘Placements’ page for further information on the organisations we work with.

Winant Clayton Volunteers welcomes applications to the programme from individuals of all ages and backgrounds. We firmly believe in the importance of equal opportunities for all, and are keen to recruit diverse groups of volunteers.
