Samaritans Christmas 2019

Welcome to all things Christmas at Samaritans 2019. If you would like to be one of our Christmas volunteers, please read the following information. There are many areas of involvement this year, and Samaritans values all our volunteers for their commitment to our cause.

Online Volunteer Registration

Requirements

As you will be working with children at Samaritans, you will require a Working With Children Check (WWCC). This is different to a Police Check. As a volunteer, the WWCC is free and lasts for five years.  NB:  children under 18 do not require a WWCC.

Click here to organise your WWCC number.

Strenuous activity/functions

We value our volunteers and understand there may be times when they are unable to carry, pick-up or move items on the day.  Please do not register for a role that you feel you will not be able to perform on the day. There are plenty of other low impact positions that may be suited to you.
