Volunteer with us
Volunteers support every aspect of our work and are crucial to almost everything we do at The Mulberry Centre! We are a friendly team and rely on the variety and diversity that our volunteers bring, and the generosity and commitment of their donated time and skills, to help people as they deal with the impact of cancer on their lives.

The Mulberry Centre recognises the important contribution that volunteers make to the Centre and is committed to providing a supportive environment and delivering training relevant to the roles undertaken.
Volunteering what could I do?
There are many ways you can get involved as a volunteer at The Mulberry Centre, whether it’s at the Centre, being involved in the community, or organising at one of our events:
Volunteering at the Centre
Volunteers are a hugely important part of our team. We have Welcomers who greet people as they come into the Centre, and volunteers who provide a range of services including: counselling, complementary therapies, workshops, and well-being classes. In addition, we have volunteers in support roles such as day to day office administration, data entry, social media, general maintenance, and gardening.
Volunteering out in the Community
Community Outreach volunteers and Mulberry Mates support our outreach work in the local communities, speaking about our services, raising awareness, and encouraging people to support us through volunteering and raising funds.
Volunteering at Events
If you can bake a cake, hand out leaflets, distribute collection cans, organise a raffle, cheer loudly and have fun, you can help raise funds to support our work.
We have a variety of volunteer roles that may suit your interests, skills and availability and we welcome applications from people of all backgrounds over the age of 16; however, please note that for some roles we are unable to take volunteers who are currently or have recently (within the last two years) been affected by cancer or bereavement issues.
