The first step in applying to become a volunteer at Rough Edges is to attend a Volunteer Information Evening.  This will help you to understand what volunteering at Rough Edges is like and what the commitment is.  Having attended an information night you can apply to attend the Volunteer Training Course.

The Rough Edges Volunteer Training Course runs twice per year. Generally, one course takes place from March-April and the other from September-October. The course involves one full Saturday from 10am – 3pm and six Monday night workshops from 7.00pm – 9.30pm.  Attendance at all sessions is mandatory to become a Rough Edges volunteer.  Topics covered in those sessions include:
