Volunteer Programme

Register your interest to volunteer

Volunteers make the Civil Defence world go around. When an emergency happens, a lot of volunteers with a wide range of skills are required to help get things back to normal.

We warmly welcome everyone of all ages and abilities who want to make a
difference in their communities.

As a volunteer, you will be in a unique position to help people affected by emergencies and put their lives back together. 

Volunteering for Civil Defence takes on a variety of different roles. You could be working in the thick of it at an Emergency Coordination Centre, or on the ground in a Civil Defence Centre.
