Welcome to our volunteering system

Welcome to the SU Northern Ireland Volunteer Application System. We are really excited about the opportunities we have to work alongside children and young people and are delighted that you are interested in getting involved.

We are looking for volunteers who:

  • love Jesus and are committed to following Him
  • care about helping children and young people know God more
  • are involved in a local church

This is the portal where you can apply to become a volunteer on a Camp or Mission Team or in schools with SUNI.

Frequently Asked Questions

My referee has not received their email, what should I do?

If your referee hasn't received the automated email, please check the following:

  • is the email address you enetered in your application form correct?
  • has your referee checked their junk / spam folder?

If the above steps have been completed, please contact us via the enquiry section on the website and we'll make sure to get everything sorted

Can I apply for more than one team this summer?



We love your enthusiasm and you can take part in as many teams as you're able to throughout the summer. However, please bear in mind that a team can be a tiring experience (alongside all the good, of course!), so don't over-load yourself. 


To apply for multiple teams, simply click on the 'apply now' button for each team. Your details (including referees, admin fee and Access NI) should autmoatically appear in any additional application you make. 

Why do I need to submit an Access NI form?

Access NI is an essential part of your application since your work with SUNI will involve working with children.  If you do not wish to apply for an Enhanced Disclosure from Access NI, please do not proceed with your application as a volunteer with SUNI.

Where is my validation email?

When you register on the site for the first time, you will receive a validation email to your chosen email address within minutes of registering.  Please note that if you have registered using a 'hotmail' or 'btinternet' email address then there's a good possibility that your validation email has gone into your junk folder.  Please check your junk folder for this as your registration will not be active until you have clicked on the link in your validation email.

Still can't find your validation email?  Please get in touch and we'll help you out!

Why do I need to pay an admin fee?

Each year we ask our Camps and Missions volunteers to pay a small non-refundable administrative fee (£20) towards the work of Scripture Union Camps and Missions.  Your admin fee is crucial in the processing of your application alongside those of our other 1000+ volunteers, and we only ask for one payment per summer regardless of how many teams you apply for.  Your fee will support the operation of our website, publicity, and general support and training of our volunteers and team leaders in the run up to the summer months.  If you are unable to pay your fee using a payment card, please use the Contact Us area of this website to get in touch with a member of staff and we will be in touch.  Keep an eye on your Messages (top of the screen).

Thanks so much!
