Volunteer Application Form

Please note we have a set number of volunteering positions and depending on current vacancies, we may not be able to offer volunteers a position at the time and in the area which meets their preference. Applicants will be placed on a waiting list and contacted if a vacancy becomes available.  As a charity we do not have the resources to respond to individual application forms until a suitable space becomes available.

Upon receipt of your application form we will assess your application and, providing it is successful and we have a vacancy, we will invite you for an interview. Sometimes we may suggest you would be better suited to a different area of work – if this is the case we will discuss it with you and transfer you to a different activity with your consent. After the interview, you will then be contacted as to whether you are successful or not, and what your start date will be.

Thank you so much for your interest.
