No Panic run a helpline 365 days a year and is entirely staffed by volunteers. Not only does volunteering help No Panic, but it can help you too. We provide full helpline training, which can provide you with experience that may be useful for students, enhance your CV and improve future employment prospects, help you gain confidence and self-esteem, develop existing skills and knowledge, and make you feel part of a team and valued. It could also be a chance to give back to an organisation which may have had an impact on you or someone you know. You will be making a difference to the lives of others. We can also provide references for volunteers who have been with us for 12 months or more.

By using EasySearch instead of Google or any other search engine, you can make a real difference. EasySearch is completely free and by making just 10 searches a day, you could raise around £20 a year for your chosen cause.
Let’s says you want to do your weekly shop? Well instead of going direct to your chosen store website, go to EasyFundraising or Giveasyoulive, find your chosen store and it will simply take you to their website to complete your shop, but No Panic will receive a percentage of the money you spend. The amount will vary depending on the store you are shopping at and it won’t cost you a penny extra.

Other ways to fundraise
There are so many ways you can fundraise. There is something for everybody. See our list of ideas for some inspiration or you could come up with your own fantastic idea. We will help you as much as we can by sending you a fundraising pack which will contain posters, business cards and more.
You could set up your very own JustGiving page and text number so anyone wishing to sponsor you can pay by card or text if they want to. They can even gift aid these donations which means No Panic will receive an extra 25% on eligible donations. When you have completed your fundraising even we will send you your very own No Panic certificate to thank you for the fantastic job you have done. Not only is this a lovely thing to have to show your friends and family but it also is great to put on your record of achievements and on your CV.
