Become a volunteer
If you are 16–18 you'll require parental consent and will be fully supervised at the services. If you're over 18 you will not need parental consent but will need to undertake a DBS check. All volunteers will need to provide references and will receive training.
If you would like to participate in Leonard Cheshire national events or want to organise your own call the events team on 020 3242 0396 or contact them online.
