I'm interested, but I'm not sure if volunteering is right for me?
We welcome a huge range of volunteers from different ages, experiences and interests. After you apply, we'll invite you in for a chat which will give us a chance to explore your skills and interest in the role, and you a chance to ask us lots of questions. It's as much about your decision as it is ours. Our training and ongoing support then helps ensure that you feel confident in your role and comfortable to raise any concerns or worries.
How much time would I need to commit?
It depends on how much time you'd like to give. Our roles vary in how much time is required and this will always be included in the information listed in Current Volunteer Opportunities.
I've been missing or know someone who has, can I still volunteer?
We think it's fantastic if someone who has been effected by the issue we care so much about wants to be a part of helping others in a similar situation. When we receive your application, we'll get in touch to chat things through. We want to make sure you'd be happy and confident in your role, as well as having the right support from us.
What happens if I'm unable to afford travel costs while volunteering?
As a volunteer you give the gift of your time so we certainly wouldn't expect you to go out of pocket for that. We reimburse all reasonable travel expenses up to £15 each time you volunteer. If you're supporting at any one time for over four hours, we'll also reimburse up to £5 for your lunch.
