Volunteer roles

We have a range of flexible volunteer opportunities available for you to support the NHS and communities

Sign up to be a Volunteer Responder

Signing up for multiple roles will increase the number of volunteer activities available to you.

Selecting a role that requires the highest level of check (the Green level) will mean once you have registered and completed the checks, you won't need to do any further checks for all current and future volunteer activities.

For all volunteer activities, you must complete an ID check. In addition, you may need to complete a DBS Check and Driver Declaration.
