How to apply

How to apply

To apply, or for more information about volunteering with Sue Ryder as an individual, you can:

Application forms

We'll ask you to complete an application form.

You can download an editable version of our application form and equal opportunities form (optional) here:

You can complete them and print off in advance.  Alternatively, the team at the location you wish to volunteer can provide hard copies.

Please hand in or post completed forms to the manager at the location you would like to volunteer.

Informal interview

When we've processed your form you'll be invited to an informal interview. This helps us make sure that your time and skills are used to benefit both of us.

We'll take up two references, and due to the nature of our work, a criminal records check may be required (at no cost to you) for some volunteer positions.

If you're offered a role

You may then be offered a trial session or a start date.

For some roles you'll need to attend mandatory training before you can start. This is for your own safety, that of our staff and patients, and to enable you to carry out your role with confidence.

If you're interested in volunteering as part of your company's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, please contact us: Get in touch
