BHCR is always looking for new volunteers to help with a variety of tasks to run the station.

A Volunteer is a person who contributes time and effort freely without payment to help others.

Volunteering is a great way to widen your experiences, take on new responsibilities, develop and learn new skills, make new friends and meet people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds within the community.

Why do people volunteer?

A variety of reasons motivate people to volunteer. They may be committed to a cause and want to give their time to promote the cause. They may want to develop a new skill or gain confidence or they may want to build up experience needed to get into a chosen area of work.

People may volunteer for a few hours a week or be equivalent to paid staff. You choose how much time and commitment you are prepared to give.

Volunteering is a legitimate activity in its own right, but it is not a substitute for paid job

No contract of employement is being created between you and BHCR
