The Assumption Volunteer Programme is for:


  • People who are willing to take up the challenge of living in a culture that is very different to their own and who want to share in the lives of the poor, the young and the marginalised, either in the UK or with Assumption communities around the world.
  • Those with a sense of personal search and openness to unfamiliar ways of working - ways that value people for who they are, not what they do.

The primary emphasis of the programme is not the provision of professional services but the mutual sharing of skills and lives.

Assumption volunteers are:

  • aged 20 and above
  • ready to make a commitment of one year in project
  • willing to adapt their skills and talents in service
  • wanting to share in the daily life of poor communities
  • living the values of justice, service and global family
  • respectful of others' religious faith
  • able to live simply
  • currently living in the UK and available for interview and training in London.

If you don't live in the UK but you live in a country overseas with an Assumption Volunteer Programme (Philippines, USA, France…) and you want to serve in our projects you must apply to the Assumption in your own country. They also send to the same projects as we do, including our UK projects. Check their websites:
