one of the greatest gifts you can give is your time.


We simply couldn’t what we do without our amazing volunteers and the wonderful generosity, enthusiasm, experience and energy they bring to Hope Nottingham.  Currently our volunteer team stands at a total of approximately 368 volunteers working at our Beeston and Carlton hubs and our satellite foodbanks across the city.  There’s an incredible array of different opportunities to get involved with at Hope covering areas right across Nottingham.  Whether you want to commit a few days a week or a few hours a month, your support really matters to us. You can find out more about the benefits of volunteering and how we empower and enable volunteering here.

We have a  Safer Recruitment Policy meaning we do follow an application and reference process.

We also ensure that volunteers are properly inducted and supported in their volunteer roles.
