What to do next

If you are interested and wish to know more about becoming a full-time volunteer please contact us using the details on the Contact Us page.

Prospective UK volunteers will be invited to visit prior to any offer of a placement. This is your introduction to Cambridge Cyrenians and an opportunity for us to decide whether we think you would be suitable as a volunteer and also an opportunity for you to decide if volunteering with Cambridge Cyrenians is for you. Visits must include at least part of one weekday to enable you to meet all of the relevant staff members.

Prospective overseas volunteers will be offered an interview by SKYPE. If you don't have SKYPE, you can download it for free from the Internet.
Non-EU applicants will require Cambridge Cyrenians to provide a Certificate of Sponsorship and to obtain a visa. In addition, as of April 2015, all non-EU applicants will also be required to pay a health surcharge of £150 to £200. This will need to be paid to the Home Office at the same time as applying for a visa. The surcharge will entitle non-EU volunteers to access the National Health Service in the same way as a permanent resident. The Volunteer Co-ordinator can provide further information about this.

All volunteers will be required to provide proof of ID, normally a copy of their passport, before being made an offer, and sight of their passport again on arrival.
Non EU applicants also need to add a scan of the photo part of their passport to their application.

You can print off the application form [PDF].

The application form is also available in Microsoft Word.
