Volunteer roles

There are many different roles to choose from. If you are interested in catering then our Five Sisters Cafe could be for you. Or how about front of house greeting people when they come to visit. If your passion is retail then why not grab a few shifts in our shop or shake a bucket if that’s your thing. We also do lots of work in the community with our Compassionate Neighbours programme or you could train to be a bereavement counsellor. All of our specialist roles come with full training and support.
