Register with us using Ami

Ami is the online system that we use to recruit volunteers.

"The registration process is really easy, you don’t have to have a huge amount of free time. Some people just want someone to go and visit them for a cup of tea, so even if you only have half an hour a week, you can help."
We are Cheshire East volunteer

How it works

By entering your postcode you will be able to find volunteering opportunities nearby. There are different opportunities to support  individuals and you’ll be able to see what kind of help they need, what their interests are and roughly how close they live to you.

When you find someone that you’d like to help, Ami will tell you which voluntary organisation this person is registered with and invite you to sign up with the same organisation who will contact you to arrange an informal telephone interview. Along the process you’ll receive email updates from the voluntary organisation to let you know how your application is progressing. Supporting this process Cheshire East Council staff will be with you every step of the way if you need support.


Why we use AMI

Be assured, when you click on sign up the Ami screen will look different from our website but don’t be concerned you are still with us.  We use Ami because it:

  • Makes it easier for you to volunteer
  • Makes it easier to be connected to community opportunities near you and on your doorstep – via a postcode search
  • Makes it easier for you to make a difference locally

Once signed up Cheshire East Council staff will support your experience. Signing up is easy and free to do, it’s just a few clicks away and only takes a few minutes.
