Volunteers are essential in helping Clan to provide a wide range of services, free of charge, to anyone affected by cancer. No matter what time you can give or what skills you can bring, Clan can offer you a special and rewarding volunteering experience.

Each role contributes significantly to our mission of providing support to anyone impacted by a cancer diagnosis.

Volunteer Testimonial

“Volunteering in a supportive and friendly environment has given me back a sense of purpose and self worth. I have enjoyed working with different people at Clan and speaking to many people in the community that I have known for a long time but wouldn’t otherwise see.

I have enjoyed the camaraderie and support.”
