Volunteering with Cancer Research UK

Find a volunteer role


As a result of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, and advice from the Government, all our face to face involvement activity has been put on hold. 

As a result of this it may take a little longer than normal to process your application. We'd love you to sign up today - and we promise to be in touch as soon as restrictions are lifted. In the meantime, stay safe and look after yourselves and each other. 

You can also check out our current volunteer opportunities that you can get involved with from home

Most of our roles require volunteers to be 18 years or older.
