Become an Area Representative

Could you become a Vetlife volunteer?

As a Vetlife volunteer, you would join a network of Vetlife Area Representatives throughout the UK. Area Reps provide the interface between Vetlife and those members of the veterinary profession, their relatives and dependents who benefit from its services.

You would use your experience of the veterinary profession to help ensure appropriate support is directed to existing and new beneficiaries in need. You would also play a key role in promoting Vetlife within and outside the profession.

Area Representatives often deal with vulnerable people who may be very sensitive, so tact and discretion are essential. You will therefore go through an induction and training will be provided.

The role can be challenging but also rewarding, with the opportunity to build relationships with Vetlife beneficiaries and to positively impact the lives of members of the profession who may be in need.

If you would like to volunteer to become an area rep, or would like more information on the role, please contact Vetlife Administration Manager Joanne Driver at the Vetlife office (, 020 7908 6385) or Vetlife Honorary Secretary Elaine Garvican (

Those agreeing to serve as Area Representatives are expected to undergo a DBS check. Please view our Financial Area Representative Volunteer information sheet here.
