Volunteer Application Form - YMCA DownsLink Group

Volunteer Application Form

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us at the YMCA DownsLink Group! Please complete our application form and we'll make sure it reaches the volunteer coordinators who run the project (or projects!) you are interested in. We also ask that you complete our Diversity & Inclusion form at the end - it will be anonymous and helps us monitor how diverse we are (and what we can do to improve). Please note, if you are successful we will likely ask you to complete an enhanced DBS check. If you have any queries about applying, please contact us at [email protected]

You don't have to complete this all in one go. If you like, you save and continue later - just click the button at the bottom of the page and a link will be sent to your email address.

I declare that the information contained in the application form and the attached equal opportunities monitoring and medical questionnaire forms are true and correct. I understand that any false or misleading information, or omissions concerning criminal convictions, may disqualify my application or may render my volunteer placement, if I am appointed, liable to end without notice.I understand that if the role I am applying for involves contact with young people or vulnerable adults; if I am successful, an Enhanced DBS Disclosure will be applied for.
