Applying to volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with SYEDA. Please fill in this form and we will be in touch to arrange next steps including interviews and training.

At present, we have no new volunteer training programmes planned until autumn 2016. However, if you fill in the application form, we will add you to our database of interested volunteers, and will be in touch  when new training opportunities arise. 

 If you have any questions, please email info@syeda.org.uk or call on 0114 272 8822.

We can only accept volunteers who are over 18.

Personal experience of an eating disorder is no barrier to volunteering with us at SYEDA, and we encourage anyone interested in volunteering to get in touch. Volunteers with personal experience of an eating disorder may not to be able to volunteer in all roles until they are out of treatment and free of symptoms of disordered eating, but we do recognize that every experience and recovery journey is different, and that volunteering can be a positive part of recovery.

We ask that potential volunteers with experience of an eating disorder discuss this with the Volunteer Coordinator. Every disclosure of previous or current experience will be treated with sensitivity and creativity and options for volunteering will considered on a case by case basis. Any information shared will be kept confidential within the SYEDA team. If you have any personal experience, please either email or call the volunteer coordinator on the details above, or you can share any relevant information in the form below. 

Please email or call if you have any problems at all with the form or the application process.
