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.

Nottinghamshire Hospice is fully committed to supporting and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion best practice within our staff and volunteer workforce, as well as with our patients and supporters. We warmly welcome those from all backgrounds – this diversity is important for our journey and values and enriches the services we offer.

We particularly welcome applicants from minoritised ethnic communities, LGBTQ+ communities, applicants under the age of 40, applicants with disabilities, and male applicants for clinical roles, as they are currently under-represented within our workforce.
