At AFK we rely on our volunteers to help support us in lots of difference ways, meet Catherine and Catalina and see what they get up to!


Catherine got to know AFK when she worked at Sainsbury's and led her team to raise lots of vital funds as our charity of the year partner. She now helps out at lots of different fundraising events that help raise funds and awareness for our cause; like our stall at Crouch End Festival, helping to organise our Halloween Walk and arranges breakfasts for our young people to come together and enjoy some social time at The Mossy Well in Muswell Hill!

When Catherine was young, there weren't many facilities to help people with disabilities, so she wanted to give something back by volunteering. She said, "It's so fun at AFK and everyone has such a good sense of humour."

If you know a young person who would like to be involved with our social events contact [email protected]


Catalina largely supports at trainees in their work placements and projects at our offices and out in the community, which is vital for preparing them for paid work. She also loves getting involved with our fundraising events and supports us at our Beach Volleyball event and takes part in sponsored walks.

Catalina approaches life and her work with our young people with a huge heart, she said "The students and staff at Action For Kids are very welcoming and fun, I love it!"
