Volunteer to work for the Beckley Foundation

Occasionally opportunities arise to volunteer for the Beckley Foundation. There are various ways you can help, including:

  • Event outreach and setting up/manning a BF table at conferences and events
  • Fundraising
  • Translation of BF materials
  • Publishing, art and design work
  • Administrative/office work

Please first ensure you are eligible to work in the UK, as we are unfortunately unable to provide sponsorships for overseas applicants.

If there are other ways you would like to contribute, please do not hesitate to contact us at

We also periodically offer internship opportunities, both in policy and science areas. However, such positions are very rare, and we cannot guarantee placement.
