Due to the current corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic we have suspended all volunteering recruitment until further notice.

We are reviewing this decision in line with current advice from government authorities and will be recruiting again as soon as possible.

What could you do with three hours?
Watch three episodes of the latest must-see series. Go out for a meal. Interact on social media. All very enjoyable to do, but will any of those positively impact your local community and simultaneously enhance your sense of self-worth? Volunteering with Headway Nottingham will, and three hours a week is all we need from you.


We are looking for volunteers of all ages and from all backgrounds to offer support in our day centre.  We will consider your application to volunteer regardless of your educational background or life experience if you demonstrate the right attitude during our volunteer induction.  You may assist a tutor in a workshop or lesson, spend time engaging in conversation with our clients or have a hotly contested game of scrabble.  Maybe you have a skill that could benefit our charity in another way, administrative or fundraising experience, or something completely new that we haven’t yet considered.  Get in touch and let us know, we are always open to innovative ideas!

If you volunteer with us, you will…

  • help others on their rehabilitative journey
  • gain valuable skills and experience
  • work with a friendly and dynamic staff team
  • meet some truly inspiring people
  • make a difference to your local community
  • feel good about yourself

Don’t just take our word for it, read what previous and current volunteers have said about their time with us here
