How to volunteer

Do you want to volunteer with the Cancer Society?

Our volunteers provide vital support to the Cancer Society - without their commitment, we would not be able to do the work we do in our communities. 

If you are interested in volunteering, the application process would include:

  • filling out an expression of interest form in the first instance
  • an application pack will then be sent out to you
  • on completition of applicaiton pack you will be invited to an interview to meet and talk about your interests and possible roles
  • a character reference and a police check/ministry of justice check will then be completed
  • you will then be required to attend an orientation day 

All new volunteers coming on board are required to attend an orientation/training day before becoming a volunteer. They will be introduced to the Cancer Society and how we work. We also offer an online orientation for some of our roles.
