Volunteer Application Form

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Fighting Words NI.  Please complete this application form.

The majority of our workshops take place during the school day, however we also run workshops and writing groups after school hours, on weekends and during school holidays. Indicating your availability below does not commit or limit you to volunteering at these times but is helpful for us to get a sense of when you might be available. There is no minimum requirement to volunteer with us.
Please supply the name and contact details of two referees. These referees must have known you for at least 2 years and cannot be related to you.
In order to take part in some of our events such as our after-school writing groups, you may be required to submit an application for an Access NI Enhanced check including a check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). This applies when an activity is regulated as it involves supervising children.
Fighting Words NI is committed to protecting children and young people and keeping them safe from harm. We are also committed to promoting equality and discouraging discrimination. Staff, volunteers and artists are required to comply with our policies on Safeguarding, Health & Safety, Equality and Data Protection. (You will find a link to each of these policies in the footer of this webpage.) By submitting this form:
