Volunteer Application Form
You're interested in volunteering with Healthwatch. That's great news.
First we need to make sure that you're eligible to volunteer in the UK:
- All UK citizens can volunteer. If you are receiving benefits such as Job Seekers Allowance (JSA), Employment Support Allowance (ESA), and Incapacity Benefit (IB) you can still volunteer without restrictions. However, if you are on JSA you also need to have time to actively search for work, and if you are on ESA or IB you should consider how many hours you can realistically volunteer in order not to be challenged about your benefit.
- All EU Citizens are eligible to volunteer in the UK. If you are a resident of the UK some of the above restrictions may apply.
- Children under the age of 18 can volunteer, but children under the age of 14 should not volunteer within school hours.
- More information on eligibility can be found here.
