Volunteer with Us

Every volunteer dedicates their personal time and energy to our cause in a variety of roles. We really do appreciate the commitment that is given. At Kilmarnock's Horse Rescue and Rehoming centre in Crawley there are so many ways in which volunteers may help us, and without them, we would struggle to meet the needs of the charity.

We need more volunteers who are able to provide regular help to assist us with tasks such as general maintenance (e.g. painting and renovating our stables, fixing broken yard tools, general DIY, and fence mending), yard duties (such as mucking out, grooming, helping out on farrier or vet days by handling the horses, and filling hay nets), administration duties, and assisting at our events.

There are lots of benefits to becoming a Kilmarnock Horse Rescue volunteer.  

You will learn more about horses, meet new people, and make new friends, develop or gain new skills to build your CV or help you gain confidence and self-esteem. You will also become part of a valued team allowing you to give something back to an animal you love and respect.

Being a volunteer can be a very rewarding experience. 

If you feel you could help us by giving some of your time, and contributing to the welfare of our horses, ponies and donkeys in our care please contact us.

Vacancy for Volunteer Event Coordinator

Kilmarnock Horse Rescue are currently seeking an enthusiastic, organised and committed individual to help us with our summer and autumn fundraising events.  We’d love to hear from anyone who is capable, interested, and has the time to spare to help us to raise funds to support the equines in our care. 

We are a small charity with limited financial and administrative resources.  Our income is derived solely from donations and fundraising.  Our small team of trustees need additional support and expertise to manage the number of events planned to raise the income we need.

This volunteer role will work closely with the founder and Chair of the Charity and with other members of the Trustee team to take the lead in managing our diary of events over the coming months.  Many of the tasks required can be done from home however, when on site you will be working in a friendly and informal environment – wellies not essential but may come in handy!
