The Mulberry Centre - for anyone affected by cancer Heart

Volunteers

The Mulberry Centre offers a wide range of volunteering opportunities and relies on volunteers who donate their time and expertise to enable us to offer support to people affected by cancer. Our volunteers welcome visitors, deliver therapies and counselling, organise fundraising events and assist with the day-to-day activities that allow us to offer the support that we do.

We are most fortunate that the aims and work of The Mulberry Centre have continued to attract dedicated and high calibre volunteers and  we rely on their generosity and commitment in supporting our work. Their enthusiasm and professionalism are at the heart of The Mulberry Centre’s values and volunteers are considered to be an integral part of our team. The Mulberry Centre recognises the important contribution that volunteers make to the centre and is committed to providing a supportive environment to them.

Volunteering provides an opportunity to share your time and skills to make a real difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. The Mulberry Centre is committed to offering our volunteers a positive volunteering experience and offer ongoing training relevant to the volunteer roles. Current volunteering roles include Welcomers, Counsellors, Complementary Therapists, Fundraisers, Community Outreach Volunteers and Admin Support.

We have a wide variety of volunteer roles that may suit your interests, skills and availability and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds over the age of 16. If you are interested in volunteering please complete and return our Volunteer Application Form. Alternatively you can contact Jo Taranowski on 0208 321 6300 or by emailing jo.taranowski@themulberrycentre.co.uk.

Please note that for some roles we are unable to take volunteers who are currently or recently (within the last two years) affected by cancer or bereavement issues. If you have recent experience of either you are able to register as a Mulberry Mate/Fundraiser.

Please also note if you are applying for a volunteer therapist role you must be fully qualified, hold personal insurance and have at least 12 months’ experience post qualification. If you are applying for a volunteer counsellor role you must at least be in your second year of a BACP accredited course (or similar) and have personal insurance.
