DC Network volunteers are essential to the running of many of our activities and we are hugely grateful to them for the time and effort that they put into their roles. If you're considering volunteering with us, you can find the list of vacancies below, as a series of clips for you to watch about the Welcomer & local group coordinator roles.
If you'd like to find out more then we'd love to hear from you.
The key criteria is enthusiasm, and a friendly, thoughtful and empathetic approach. We find its helpful for our volunteers to have children older than 3 so that they can offer a wider range of experiences, however this is not fixed.
We currently have vacancies for the following roles:
We are looking for members in the following circumstances to join our welcoming team:
Heterosexual couples / same-sex couples who have used double/embryo donation

or in 'mixed families' [with naturally or adopted children and donor conceived children]
Local meetup coordinators
South West England
and generally anyone across the UK/Ireland interested in arranging in-person events.
Chat facilitators are the latest addition to our team of volunteers, as we have expanded our online offer of DCN Chats. Ideally if you are interested in this role, you will have some experience of group facilitation. We are especially interested in hearing from members in the following circumstances:
Solo mums through double/embryo donation
Heterosexual couples - older children
Ethnicity - an experienced facilitator who can reflect on the way in which ethnicity impacts on the experience of donor conception
Donor conceived person - who can run bi-monthly/monthly sessions for this group
We are always looking for event volunteers (e.g to work at the Fertility show) and for small group faciliators for our conferences.
