Application Form – Volunteer

Thank you for deciding to apply to volunteer with Raleigh International!

A few things before you start…

  1. Please read all of these points then complete all fields on this initial form (below) and then click “Proceed to main form”. You will then be taken to the main Volunteer application form. Please note that if you have previously submitted an application to Raleigh, signed up to our Expedition newsletter or have downloaded an expedition guide, we may already have some of your details in our system and these details will be displayed on the main Volunteer application form.

  2. You will be able to save the main form and complete it at a later time if you wish. Just click “Save & Complete Later” on the main form and you will be sent an email containing a unique link. Clicking on this link will take you back to your saved application. Once you are happy with your application, please press the “Submit” button to send it for screening. You will receive an automatic email from us confirming receipt of your application.

  3. Whilst we encourage you to complete your application at a pace you feel comfortable with, please do try not to leave it too long or forget that you’ve started it! If you have not submitted your application after 3 days, you will start to receive reminder emails from our recruitment team. Should you decide you no longer wish to continue with your application, please contact us at or on +44 (0) 207 183 1286 to let us know. If your application remains saved but not submitted for longer than 2 months, we will permanently remove the application and all associated personal data from our database.

  4. Medical condition or concern? Raleigh Expeditions are open to anyone who wants to apply, but it must be safe for you to take part. Please read our medical form. You don’t need to complete this form until your application has been approved and you have been sent details of how and when to do so. If you have or previously have had any physical or mental health conditions or are currently taking any prescription medications, please book a call with the Raleigh Medical Team using this link. You can apply before you have spoken to the Medical team however your place will not be guaranteed until after you have spoken to one of the Nurses if you have a medical condition or concern.

  5. Make sure you have your credit/debit card with you to pay your deposit at the end. View our full fundraising costs.

  6. Before you sign up, it’s important you read our terms and conditions. They are a bit long but we want to ensure you know what to expect from the Expedition so there are no surprises when you get started. Please note, due to changing operational practices in response to Covid-19, we are currently reviewing our terms and conditions regarding cancellations and insurance cover. We will write to you once these are finalised to confirm changes. You will have the opportunity to review and agree (or reject, withdraw and ask for any monies returned) in the near future.
