GUTs volunteer application form

GUTs logoThank you very much for your interest in becoming a volunteer for Coeliac UK GUTs (Gluten free Under Thirties) Group as a member of the GUTs Committee.

We are now recruiting for GUTs volunteers! If you are aged 18-30, have experience of coeliac disease and are passionate about sharing your experiences to help improve young member’s lives, then we want to hear from you. By becoming a GUTs volunteer, you can become part of an enthusiastic and supportive team, help make a difference to young adults living gluten free nationally, meet new people, gain new skills, and be involved in something really worthwhile and rewarding. Time commitment is mainly 1-2 hours per a week but at certain times of the year that can increase.

This year GUTs will be overseeing the creation and content Moving On Pack which is aimed at 18-30 year olds who are leaving home for the first time. This is an exciting project, which the current GUTs committee are working on and we are aiming to be launched in time for A Level results in August.
