Used internationally, with a volunteer crew from a variety of different backgrounds and locations, our work has reached hundreds of students of all ages across the world.

We are committed to our volunteers, striving to provide the best experience possible. We aim to be an organisation volunteers can be proud of, and fully support our team with whatever personal or professional undertakings they may have. Volunteering with Gwiddle can be used towards extra-curricular awards and qualifications such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, where it can count towards your Volunteering module.
