As a volunteer you'll learn new skills, meet new people and have fun while making a real difference in your local community.

Do something amazing for Yorkshire

We wouldn’t be able to help the people of Yorkshire avoid and survive cancer without the efforts of hundreds of volunteers across the region. Your time is incredibly valuable to us, and every minute counts.

Volunteer at an event

Our events raise thousands of pounds every year for important research projects. Volunteers are key to their success.

If you would like to help, please contact the Events Team by emailing events@ycr.org.uk or calling 01423 877210.

Volunteer groups

Our local volunteer groups raise vital funds and extend the profile of Yorkshire Cancer Research in their areas.

From organising and promoting fundraising events to giving a talk in the local community, you’ll be making a big difference.

Other ways to get involved

Activities that we sometimes rely on volunteers' help with include street collections, distributing flyers and posters, promoting Yorkshire Cancer Research at local events, and helping stuff envelopes or make up goodie bags at our office. If you have knowledge and skills that you think might be useful, please do get in touch.
