About the organisation

Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM)

The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is an award-winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. In 2015, 75% of all UK suicides were male.

Application deadline: 

Do you want to make a difference to people affected by suicide? Come into CALM HQ to help us support our supporters to raise money for and awareness of CALM. We’ve had a massive increase in orders and can’t fulfil them without the help of excellent people like you!

CALM works to prevent male suicide, the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. We provide a helpline and webchat services and campaign to change the conversation about masculinity and suicide.

As a relatively small team the help of volunteers is essential to us ensuring our supporters have the best possible experience. You’ll be packing up materials and merchandise and sending it all out to people across the country. These packs will help people raise awareness of CALM and the issue of male suicide or raise money so CALM can continue our work.

Role Aim: 

Help CALM give our supporters the best possible experience. Work with the Engagement and Fundraising teams to fulfil orders from people raising money and awareness for CALM.

As CALM grows and grows, we have been inundated with requests for our materials. We need your help to fulfil these orders. This is an ongoing role as we need volunteers on a weekly basis.

You’ll genuinely be helping people affected by suicide in different ways.
