When you volunteer to lend a hand to Cancer Support Yorkshire, you’re also giving your support to local people affected by cancer – and their families. You may also find the volunteering experience personally rewarding.

If you have time to give, either on an adhoc basis or at regular times each week, we'd love to hear from you because there are endless ways you can help us.

Below are some volunteer roles, but if you've got something else in mind, please still get in touch!

Thanks to our volunteers we can continue to offer the support that people need. Could you spare some time?

Our Centres

We're always looking for volunteers to support each of our local centres.


I'm proud to be a small cog in the mechanics of this great team.

James – Volunteer Meet & Greeter

I love volunteering, it gives me a reason to get up on a morning - it's a powerful crutch.


After my cancer diagnosis I was anxious and confused. Although I had great support at home I felt I needed more help without burdening my nearest and dearest. I called in at CSY where I was made to feel very welcome and put at ease by the friendly staff.


My work is so rewarding and I learn so much from the people I support.

Jan – Volunteer Therapist

I am a cancer survivor and owe a lot to Cancer Support Yorkshire for helping me out of that very deep, dark hole. I now fundraise to give a bit back and to help others because I know what they're going through.


I have been a driver for 11 years and enjoy every minute of the job.

Philip – Volunteer Driver
