How do I become a GADAB volunteer?

Our application process is designed to be nice and straight forward. All of our volunteering opportunities come with a role profile which tells you exactly what skills, experience and qualities you need to have to get on board.

Before you join us as a volunteer, you may be asked to attend an informal interview either in person or over the phone. In addition you may be offered the opportunity to come along for a trial shift at your local Community Space. This is a great opportunity for you to find out more about the role, meet the staff and get a sense of whether the opportunity is what you are looking for. It is also a chance for us to understand if you are a good fit for the team!
