Volunteer for us
- Our gluten free community is full of fabulous people who have learned about gluten free living and want to give back to others
- Volunteering can help you learn new skills, meet new people and gain confidence, whilst making a difference
- Sharing your experiences of living with coeliac disease and following a gluten free diet could make such a difference to someone who is just starting out.
Volunteer for us
Coeliac UK has over 1,000 volunteers who play a crucial and direct role in supporting our gluten free community. We have a range of ways to get involved by helping others, and it needn't take up lots of time.
You can help to improve the lives of people whose lives are limited by gluten by giving your time, skills and experience through one of our volunteering opportunities.
How to volunteer
- Find a role. We have a range of different volunteering roles to get involved in, from working directly with other people with coeliac disease, supporting the Charity’s campaigns or getting involved in research. We are committed to making volunteering as simple as possible with most roles based within your local community and some can even be done in the comfort of your own home.
- Apply. Each role has a different application process. Once you have found a role, you may just need to complete a short online form or email us to express your interest. The Volunteering team will then email or call you, or may arrange to meet for a chat. It's a chance for you to find out more about the role and we can get to know you better to ensure we can match your skills and interests with our volunteer opportunities.
- Receive support. All volunteers will be sent relevant resources and training for their role. The Coeliac UK Volunteering team are on hand to provide ongoing help and support during your time as a volunteer. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
