Volunteers share a 'gift relationship' with us. The time and effort given by volunteers directly and indirectly help make a real difference to people who are affected by or living with cancer. The time contributed by volunteers enables us to extend and develop the quality and scope of our valuable services. This relationship also benefits volunteers in a number of ways. Volunteers find that volunteering gives them the opportunity to:

  • Have fun and share great company.
  • Learn new skills.
  • Gain valuable work experience.
  • Meet new people.
  • Make friends.
  • Relieve boredom.
  • Gain Confidence.
  • Improve self-esteem.
  • Help a worthy cause.
  • Receive training

Who can volunteer?

Helping you to help us
