Next steps

After submitting the form, we’ll be in touch to find out more about how you would like to volunteer.

Many volunteering roles involve contact with vulnerable older people so references and checks are required as a legal requirement and necessary under our safeguarding practices. This can take up to 8 weeks to complete. We will do our best to support you through the process as quickly as possible.
