We are always grateful for volunteers on our Weekend Breakfast Project to help with cooking and serving food, cleaning dishes, and picking clothing donations for our service users. If you would like to volunteer for the Weekend Breakfast Project, please submit the form below and we will be in touch to make arrangements.
Please remember to retain a copy of your volunteer days for your own records. You will receive a copy of your completed form to the email address you supply.
Please also take a moment to read our policy on obtaining references if you have not already done so. We strongly advise that you ask your referees if they are willing to provide a reference before submitting the form – they will be emailed automatically by our system when you click ‘Submit’.
If you have any difficulty submitting the form, please check our troubleshooting page for known issues. If this does not help, please report the problem to us so that we can fix it as soon as possible.
Policy on Obtaining References
At Lifeshare, we want to ensure that you – and the people you will be working with – are suitable for the volunteer role. To this end, we ask you for two character references when you first apply as a volunteer. These should be from people who know you well, though not necessarily people that you have worked with professionally – a friend or colleague who knows you personally will do. Out of courtesy to them, please let them know that you have suggested them as referees to Lifeshare.
We ask for references electronically to reduce our admin and stationery costs, so you must provide references with an email address.
Your application will not be approved until we have received at least one satisfactory reference.
For the Christmas Project, where we are working to a tight schedule, we will contact you around 1 December if we have not received at least one satisfactory reference, whereupon you will have one week to ensure that at least one of your referees provide us with a reference for you.
