Why volunteer?

By giving your time to CLIC Sargent, you are committing to our vision. We want everyone under 25 with cancer, and their families, to get the support and help they need during their cancer treatment and beyond. This includes bereaved families living with emotional pain.

Why volunteer?

Volunteers choose to give their time for a reason. You might have had experience of cancer, want to share your expertise, develop more skills or simply want to make a real difference. Each volunteer is a part of Team CLIC Sargent and fights for young lives against cancer.

Volunteers are essential to our work. Whether you can give a day or want to become a lifelong volunteer, every action you take for young lives against cancer makes a difference.

“I have learnt that every person in the CLIC Sargent team is vital in achieving the goals of the charity.”

Charlie, Trust Intern, 2016

From the moment you get in touch, you are a part of our team and we will support you.

Inductions and briefings

To make sure you feel fully ready to take on your volunteering role, you’ll always get an induction or briefing. If you have any questions left unanswered, feel free to speak to your key contact.

A supportive relationship

It’s our job to support you, and to have open and honest conversations with you about how you are doing. Likewise, it’s your job to let us know how we are doing! We give you all of the information and resources you need before we ask you to give your time. We also let you know the difference you’re making, help you to learn more, and can offer references for your time volunteering.

Support and training

We provide you with training that’s appropriate to your role. This could include training on a shop till, giving talks in your community, or how to use our supporter database. We help develop your skills and your confidence!
