Apply to volunteer as a Bliss Champion

Thank you for applying to volunteer as a Bliss Champion.

Please note that if you have had a premature or sick baby, Bliss requires you to wait at least one year after your baby has been born to become a volunteer.

You need to complete the form in one go (you can’t save and return to complete it). So, we suggest that you take a look through the questions and be ready to provide all the information before you start.

If you have any questions about the application form please email us at

Please note: Bliss will use the information you have provided to process your application as a volunteer. We will also keep you up to date with volunteering news in the future.

Your details


We'll only use this to contact you with relevant information and if you opt-in to receive other Bliss updates.

When is it best to contact you? *

We ask for date of birth as you need to be over 18 to volunteer with Bliss.

Do you speak any languages fluently, other than English?

This helps us know how you could use your language skills as a Bliss Champion.

Are your day-to-day activities limited because of a health problem or disability which has lasted, or is expected to last, at least 12 months?

We ask this information to help us to understand any accessibility requirements that will help you when working with the unit.

Our diversity monitoring

Please fill in this optional, anonymous equality, diversity and inclusivity form (link opens in a new tab) to help us monitor and improve our recruitment practices.

This information will not be stored with your application and is anonymously gathered.

There is no requirement on you to complete this and will have no bearing on your request to volunteer.

Your volunteering

Are you applying to volunteer face to face, virtual or both? *

Please see role description on our website. Please note if you’ve had a neonatal experience yourself, we ask that you wait until at least one year after this before offering to volunteer.

Your references

Please provide us with the contact details of two people we can contact to act as character referees for you (this cannot be a relative or partner).

Criminal records agreement

Due to the nature of the volunteering roles, you are required by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 to declare all criminal convictions, including those which are spent.

Please note that the disclosure of a conviction or caution may not prevent you from volunteering or working for Bliss, but failure to disclose any conviction or caution will.

Checks will only be requested for those applicants that we wish to interview - If you are invited to interview and have any convictions you think might show up on a check, please contact us directly to discuss this and we will ask you to provide further details.
