Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us to help save lives.

As a result of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, and advice from the Government, we’re pausing many volunteer applications for the moment. This is to protect you, our volunteers, staff and supporters. 

Because your well-being is our priority, we’ve closed all our shops until further notice and some of our mass participation events – including Race for Life – have been postponed. Like everyone today, we’re working hard to overcome challenges, and we’d love for you to play a role in our future progress.

We have opportunities available now, which you can fulfill from home.

You can still sign up to volunteer for any role – it just may take a little longer than normal to process your application, and there may be a delay in starting some roles. We promise to be in touch as soon as possible. In the meantime, stay safe, and look after yourselves and each other.


Volunteer from home

Make a difference from the comfort of your own home. We have a range of opportunities to make volunteering work for you
