    Thank you!

    Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Cavendish. Cavendish Cancer Care has a fantastic network of volunteers and supporters who play an integral role behind the scenes here at the Centre. Not only do they provide much needed support to our busy teams, they help to keep our costs to a minimal level so that we are able to focus more funding on providing therapies and treatments to those who really need it. We are very flexible and appreciate any time or support you are willing to offer so please do not hesitate to contact us and arrange something to specifically suit you!

    If you would like to join our volunteering team, please have a read through of the various roles on offer, and fill out the application form. Alternatively, you can contact Kim on K.Scott@cavcare.org.uk, or ring 0114 278 4600 for a chat.

    Volunteer Roles

    Pro-bono support

    Cavendish Cancer Care have very limited funds, and we like to spend as much of them as possible on supporting local people. We don’t have much to spare for other things – which is why we’re incredibly grateful to receive pro-bono support from talented individuals and businesses. This includes all sorts – from digital support such as web design, copywriting and graphic design, to skilled labour such as electrical work and putting up shelves!

    If you have a skill you would like to offer to Cavendish, even if it’s just an hour or a day of your time, we would love to hear from you. We are always grateful for any pro-bono support, and would be proud to shout about your business to say thank you! To find out more or have a chat, fill out the volunteer application form, give us a call on 0114 278 4600, or email hello@cavcare.org.uk.

    Meet Carol…

    Carol has volunteered at Cavendish for over 11 years. She supports our reception team by welcoming clients, making cups of tea and coffee, and supporting with admin work.

    “I’ve loved every minute of volunteering here. I get such a great deal of self-satisfaction and happiness from helping others who need care, and I take that rewarding feeling home with me every night.

    What started as simply something to get me out of the house quickly turned into something I very much love, and have a great passion for. My days are filled with meeting new people from all walks of life, not only from working on the reception in our centre, but also as part of the fundraising team.

    Being a volunteer is great, I have the privilege of waking up in a morning and looking forward to my day knowing that in some way I am helping someone who has been affected by cancer; it makes it all worthwhile.

    I would personally urge anyone to help volunteer in any way possible, please don’t hesitate. If you’re at home and you have a few hours spare, why not consider volunteering, it’s a great way to spend your time knowing that you’re dedicated help has made someone’s life just a little bit brighter.”
