(2) About What You Want To Do

Please tell us about what interests you, and please confirm that you can actively volunteer on a regular basis. We ask that potential volunteers agree to commit at least approximately 8 hours per month (on average).

 

Our projects require regular engagement, and while we will always understand that some weeks or months are busier for you then others, please understand that on-boarding and co-ordinating volunteers is a very resource intensive activity. So if you don't think you can dedicate the hours, please support PBHK in other ways such as by attending our events, or making a donation

Please tick all that apply:

If you are a qualified solicitor, do you want to participate at our Legal Clinic as a volunteer solicitor (ie give direct advice or assistance to lay clients)?
