Volunteer – Application Form

Please read the About us and Volunteering  sections of this website and if you think you would like to join MEP complete and submit the application form below.

We do not have space to take on everyone who applies so please give us as much information as you can about why you want to join MEP. This helps us to decide who has the most to offer and the most to benefit from joining MEP.

When we receive your application we will:

  1. Reply to let you know if we are currently taking on new volunteers and confirming whether we would like to take forward your application.
  2. If we do take forward your application, we will then take up references.
  3. Once we have received satisfactory references, we will invite you to come to MEP for a short first visit one Monday to meet people and see what we do.
  4. If you are still interested, we will then ask you to attend a longer volunteer induction session so we can tell you about MEP, our principles and policies and talk about how you would like to be involved.

The application process takes several weeks. Unfortunately we can only consider volunteers who are able to come in every Monday and can commit to staying with us for at least one year.

Fields marked * are required.

Where did you hear about MEP?

Are you able to come in to MEP regularly on a Monday (all day, or morning or afternoon) for at least one year?

What would you like to do at MEP (please tick as many as possible):

Do you have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, previously CRB) check? (this is useful but not required for all volunteers)
Do you have any criminal convictions which are not yet spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974? (We will only consider an applicant's criminal record if we feel that s/he may pose a risk to our users. MEP will always review the individual circumstances of a case and explain any decision to the applicant)
If 'yes' please provide details here

Please tell us about any useful skills and experience you have (eg teaching, languages spoken, catering, IT etc)

Is there anything else you would like to tell us?

Please provide details of two referees – one professional and one professional or personal. We will take up references before accepting any applications and require an email address for both referees.
