What will I get out of volunteering with Prostate Cancer UK?
As a volunteer, you’ll help us build awareness of prostate cancer and raise funds to invest in research of better diagnostic methods and tools.
You'll get to meet like-minded people, learn new skills or use your existing ones in a rewarding, fun way.
Will volunteering cost me anything?
We reimburse all reasonable expenses relating to your volunteering according to our volunteer expenses policy.

Do you accept volunteers with convictions?
A (unspent) conviction will not automatically hinder your volunteering and each case will be considered individually. We'll do our best to find a role that works for you.
Do you accept overseas volunteers?
You will have to be based in the UK to be able to volunteer for us.
