Register as a volunteer

Thank you for deciding to register as a volunteer.

If you would prefer not to complete an online form, you can instead download one (in PDF format), print it out, complete it and either post it to us or bring it into the office.

Some of the questions on the online form will require you to provide personal information, such as name, address (and email address, if it identifies you by name). The way we store, manage and use personal information is explained in our privacy policy (this link will open in a new tab or window so you don’t lose your place).

Do you agree that we may store, manage and use any personal information you provide in accordance with our privacy policy?

We’re sorry that you don’t want to share your personal information with us. This means that we’re unable to help you further. If you would like to discuss the matter with us, you’re very welcome to contact us by telephone or email or visit our office in the Town Hall.

If you wish to change your mind, you can start again.

Please confirm that you are eligible to volunteer in the UK (Only certain nationalities are eligible to do so.)

We’re sorry to hear you are unable to volunteer because it means we are unable to help you.

We’re sorry to hear you are unsure about being able to volunteer. Please contact us as we can certainly advise you.
