Formal Application for Volunteering

Thanks for your interest in volunteering! To get things moving we need to get a bit more serious with you.  Below you will see a formal application form that we need you to complete.   Then what?

  1. Volunteer Application Form
  2. Initial Screening by StartOut team
  3. Telephone Interview
  4. Reference Checks
  5. National Criminal History Check & confirmation of Working with Children Check
  6. Mentor Training Day*
  7. Confirmation of Membership as a mentor*

We know this seems a lot but we make no apologies for making sure we recruit the right people to support young DSG people who are struggling.  We hope you understand and stick with us through the process.

If you're not quite ready to commit yet, come along to a volunteer briefing session first to learn more about us. You can register for one of our sessions here.

*non-mentor volunteers are not required to undertake these steps.
