Volunteering is important at Hope. We are accredited with the Investing in Volunteers quality mark.
There are lots of ways to get involved. We have a strong culture of volunteering and we would be unable to function without the help and goodwill of all those who offer their time and skills.   Volunteers are welcome across Hope:
  • In our day centre - including sorting clothes, cooking, washing and befriending
  • In our casework team
  • Running activity or skill based groups (arts, crafts, gardening, what can you teach?)
  • Helping in our tool repair workshop
  • Helping in our catering project
  • Helping in our new gardening project
  • Helping in our new foodclub for people on benefits
  • Helping in our charity shop (when it opens)
  • Fundraising and marketing
  • Administration and accounts
We welcome:
  • Individual, external volunteers
  • Corporate volunteers from companies looking for staff teambuilding or development
  • Student, community or faith groups
  • Client volunteers
If you would like to volunteer, or find out more about these roles, please email

In 2011 we introduced client volunteering. We give our users the opportunity to contribute to the running of the Centre, giving skills and experience. Some of our client volunteers are able to identify future work possiblities as a result of volunteering and we encourage them move on to also volunteer in other organisations after volunteering here. Contact  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, including job descriptions for the roles above.
Volunteers are an essential part of the team and we value every single volunteer.
