Volunteering Opportunities

Recruitment and Applications

Beat is committed to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. All volunteers will be required to complete the volunteer recruitment process, which includes submitting an application form, receipt of references, relevant induction training and undertaking a Self Declaration Statement and a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check where appropriate to the role.


Applications are subject to receipt of two satisfactory and appropriate references, and you will not be able to attend any Volunteer Training until both your references have been received.

Please provide details of two people whom we can contact for references including title, name, email, telephone number, address, capacity known, and length of time known.

  • Your Referees must have known you for at least one year
  • Referees cannot be relatives or partners/spouses
  • One referee must be able to offer a reference in a professional capacity, for example, employer, tutor, medical practitioner
  • Referees will be asked to confirm that you meet any specific criteria for the role

If you have any questions about who may act as a Referee for you, please contact the Volunteering Co-ordinator on: volunteer@beateatingdisorders.org.uk.
