Registering as a Friends With Dignity volunteer is a simple two step process:
- Complete a National Police Check. The company we recommend charges $29 for volunteers and generally returns the check within 72 hours.
- Complete a Volunteer application form including our Code of Conduct. If there is a particular role you would like to do, mention it in your application.
Make sure your scanned ID documents have be JP certified or they reject them and ask you to resubmit the documents (they don’t charge you again!).
Our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch to let you know the outcome of your application and put you in touch with your team leader to get started.
Due to the nature of the work we do, please note that you will not be able to volunteer until the police check has been completed, uploaded to your application form and your application has been fully processed.
