do something wonderful ...

Every year the Fund supports young Catholics from all over the world who volunteer to do something wonderful and help those less fortunate than themselves. Whether this is on an individual project, or with others – or even if you are planning to travel to Lourdes or on the Jumbulance to help an assisted pilgrim - we would like to help you to achieve your aims.

A life changing experience

Most of the volunteers we have helped tell us about the way that their service for others has changed their life for ever. It could change yours too!
