Stand Up Stars

People and activities Standing Up and Standing Out...

Does Stand Up provide kosher meals?


Yes. There will always be kosher food available to volunteers who have requested kosher food, and all our major events are strictly kosher.

Do you have volunteering opportunities for children?


From time to time we have opportunities for children to get involved. We believe it’s vital that children are introduced to values of giving and social justice from an early age. For more information please contact [email protected].

How old must you be to volunteer with Stand Up?


We accept volunteers of any age. However, most of the opportunities for volunteering are suited to those 18 years or over.
