Volunteer Programme

Volunteers make the Civil Defence world go around. When a civil defence emergency happens, we require large numbers of people with a wide range of skills and experience to volunteer and help get things back to normal.

Want to volunteer in role where you can make a big difference? A civil defence volunteer is in the unique position to help people who may have been affected by the biggest event of their life and need help putting their lives back together. 

We need people to work in a variety different roles including in an Emergency Operations or Coordination Centre or on the ground in a Civil Defence Centre.
