Volunteer with us
Volunteers are the lifeblood of much of the work we do at Friends of ANCHOR.
From ensuring our events run without a hitch, to providing a warm welcome and transport services for ANCHOR patients, we do our very best to ensure volunteer opportunities are rewarding, purposeful and enjoyable. However you choose to volunteer, whether it's helping at an event, distributing our magazines in your local area or giving your time for our hospital-based volunteer teams, please know your time is truly appreciated and brings a significant support to our work.
For details on the volunteering roles available, please read on. When you're ready, tap the button below to begin your volunteering application.
Join our Welcome Team
Our next round of interviews for hospital volunteers will be held in January, and we'll be in touch with you before then.
To ensure we provide the best possible support to our patients, and our volunteers, we have a policy in place for any new potential volunteers, which kindly requests that any current or previous ANCHOR patients wait until they are 6 months post-treatment before commencing volunteer roles. Those who are on an ongoing treatment plan who wish to volunteer are welcome to apply, and needs will be assessed on an individual basis. Our volunteer coordinator will be happy to discuss this further, should you wish to consider joining our team.
