  • 1 person is interested

We're here to make sure children and young people with cancer get the right support at the right time. We do this through tailored psychosocial support and by making their voices and unique needs heard and understood. We believe they should have the same opportunities as everyone else.

You can be a key part of this by joining our friendly team where you will be able to utilise and develop your skills learning the nuts and bolts of what it takes to be a high functioning Operations Team in a very ambitious charity. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to develop further, or who wants to use their existing skills to contribute to something important. 

 As well as making sure our amazing supporters are thanked for their fundraising efforts and donations, you will provide valuable administrative support and assist a small friendly team. There’s lots to get involved with and you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in an area that interests you most. 

What will you be doing?

  • Assisting the team with a range of administrative tasks such as filing, data entry and cleaning.
  • Processing income from supporters and our charity shops.
  • Using our database to record income.
  • Logging mail and processing.
  • Sending thank you letters/e-mails to supporters.
  • Helping with Archiving and other ongoing projects as required.

You will be organised and methodical and be keen to learn new processes and have good written and verbal communication skills.  If you have some basic IT skills that would be great, although we will provide training, so you are fully equipped for your role.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit 6-10 hours per week during office hours of 9am-5pm and can be flexible to fit in with your other commitments.  This role is primarily based in our Bristol Office (BS1 2NT), however remote working can be arranged for certain tasks.We will provide full training for the role and the support of a dedicated Volunteer Manager. And of course, we’ll cover any out-of-pocket expenses in line with our Volunteering Policy!

About Young Lives vs Cancer


4th Floor, Whitefriars, Lewins Mead, Bristol, United Kingdom BS1 2NT, GB

Mission Statement

Young Lives vs Cancer helps families find the strength to face everything cancer throws at them. We’ve been there before. We’ll face it all, together.


When a child is diagnosed with cancer it threatens everything, for them and their family.
At a time when they should be busy being children, enjoying their rollercoaster teenage years or finding their feet at uni, life becomes full of fear. Fear of treatment, but also of families being torn apart, of overwhelming money worries, mental health stretched to breaking point, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.
At Young Lives vs Cancer, we get that. We are the charity that helps children and young people (0-25) and their families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them.
We know everyone's different, so we work hard to make sure each family has what they need to get through cancer. Children and young people with cancer deserve the same opportunities as anyone else. We’ll always have their back, because we’ve been there before.
Powered by the kindness of our supporters, we’ll face it all together .
