Our Volunteer process:

To apply for a volunteer role, you will need to fill in a short application form (please click on link below) and return it to Victoria.Bixby@New-Heights.Org.UK. We will then invite you to an informal meeting to discuss your application and meet the team.

Volunteer Application Form

Before staring any volunteering role, we will always ask for two references from nominated referees who can comment on your suitability to volunteer (preferably not family or close friends). We will also ask for ID to validate your personal details.

Some of our volunteer roles will require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. If this is something you need for your volunteer role, we will advise you of this during the informal meeting. We will then provide you with a list of accepted ID and arrange for you to come into the office to complete the the on-line DBS form.

The process of starting to volunteer can take a number of weeks, but we will strive to get all your checks processed as quickly and efficiently as possible. If your circumstances change while you are awaiting your start date, please let us know.

Once all checks and paperwork have been completed, we will arrange a date and time for you to come in for your volunteer induction. This is an opportunity for us to talk about your volunteering role in more detail, meet the team, and find out about the New Heights Project. You will also be issued with a volunteer handbook which will provide you with advice on guidance on being a volunteer.
