Volunteering is important at Hope. We are accredited with the Investing in Volunteers quality mark.

In 2011 we introduced client volunteers. We give our users the opportunity to contribute to the running of the Centre, giving skills and experience, and which has proved very worthwhile. Some of our client volunteers are able to identify future work possiblities and we encourage them move on to also volunteer in other organisations after volunteering here. Contact the client voluntering lead at Hope if you can offer external volunteering opportunities for Hope's clients.
We have an induction process in place for all volunteers, with a handbook containing all the information new volunteers require in order to perform their role.
People volunteer for no financial gain and in their free time. They are an essential part of the team and we appreciate every single volunteer.
Volunteers are always needed for all the roles we specify on this site.
