Volunteer Roles

We have lots of different volunteering opportunities in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire – from working directly with our patients and their families in the hospice, to being out in the community at one of our charity shops. Each role offers the chance to gain experience, give something back and make a difference.


The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of Nottinghamshire Hospice – overseeing our financial health and ensuring all activities comply with the necessary rules and regulations. We’re always looking for new trustees and are keen to hear from people with relevant professional skills and experience.

Retail Assistant

Do you have good communication skills and enjoy helping people? Come and volunteer in our charity shops! Working as part of a team you’ll be helping to raise funds for the hospice. This is great role where you’ll make friends, learn new skills and have lots of fun.

Support Services Volunteer

Support Services volunteers provide emotional and bereavement support to adult carers, family and friends of our patients. We’re looking for people who are over 21 years of age, are good listeners and able to offer emotional support.


As the first point of call, the reception volunteer is an essential role ensuring all patients and hospice visitors are greeted with a big smile and a friendly welcome. You’ll also support activity in our reception area to aid in the smooth running of the hospice.


If you’re passionate about the outdoors, especially gardening, then this is the role for you! Our beautiful garden at the hospice brings joy and happiness to many people and we’re looking for volunteers to help us keep it looking its best with pruning, planting and general grounds maintenance.

Fundraising Assistant

Volunteers help our creative fundraising team in raising much needed income. You could help with event planning, mail campaigns or administration - to help ensure we can continue to provide our services free of charge. If you’d like to know more about this varied and interesting role, please get in touch.

Event Volunteers

Do you love working with people as part of a team? Would you like to help with the smooth running of our fundraising events? We're looking for volunteers who can bring energy and enthusiasm to this fun and enjoyable role.


Our volunteer drivers provide vital transport to and from the hospice for our patients. If you’re over 21 years of age, have your own car and would like to help others with your friendly personality and good communications skills, we’d love to hear from you.


As a volunteer counsellor, you’ll support patients and families to understand the changes they face, and support bereaved families following the loss of their loved one. Providing this service is an invaluable part of the hospice and your role will be guided and supported by the Bereavement and Carer Support Manager.

Complementary Therapist

Volunteer therapists are an invaluable part of our Day Therapy team and contribute to the personalised, holistic patient care we provide. Having a team of volunteers enables us to offer a wide range of free complementary therapies to patients and carers.


Do you have excellent administrations skills and experience of working in an office environment? Use your talents to support various teams within the hospice and learn new systems and processes along the way!
