Are you interested in volunteering for us? If you are 18 or over we would like to hear from you. We may consider recruiting 16-18 year olds on limited tasks as we understand students benefit from gaining volunteering experience.
We work alongside the emergency services and other agencies. We have a team of volunteers but always looking to further recruit to ensure we have a good number of available volunteers in the event of an emergency. It could involve going door to door to alert residents of warnings in place or even to deliver leaflets or carry out surveys, filling and distributing sandbags, assisting at emergency evacuation centres, assisting at fundraising events and other tasks with which the emergency services may need assistance. Volunteers are also needed in the recovery/tidy up stages. You can indicate which role(s) you would prefer and we do understand not everyone will always be available when needed. There is a description of the roles on an attached document in our Important Documents area.
We have meetings, training sessions and the Project Co-ordinator keeps in contact by email, WhatsApp or telephone. We provide PPE, volunteer insurance and have a volunteer risk assessment.
We do appreciate volunteers may have other committments and some may not be as readily available as others, if you are at all interested to know more then please do get in touch. Please use the ‘contact us’ form or you can call or email using the contact details on the covering page of this site.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Appleby Emergency Response Group.
