Getting Started

You can search opportunities direct from this site via the Do It database. Take a few minutes to research the organisations that you’re interested in, perhaps by visiting their website. Then, to apply for a volunteer role, you should register with Do It, which will send your application on to us and we’ll be in touch.

Don’t apply for lots of different roles at once: two or three is about right. Your time is precious, as is the time of the organisations involved. You can always search again later if you find out further down the line that the roles you’ve applied for aren’t the right fit.

If you are not confident online, and need help filling in forms, then contact Lancaster CVS and we’ll make a time to meet. We can also help you if you have any support needs, for example any physical or mental health issues that might affect your role as a volunteer.

You can also visit the centre for a one-to-one informal chat with an advisor. We offer a free advice and matching service to help you choose the volunteering options that are best for you. Please contact the Centre to arrange an appointment.
