Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteers are a vital and valued resource for Norwood

At Norwood, we benefit enormously from the involvement of volunteers and the unique and special contribution they make in helping the people we support.

In turn we aim to ensure volunteers’ time with us is as meaningful and fulfilling as possible.

To make the most of the specialist skills that individual volunteers bring we have on offer a diverse range of volunteering opportunities. Why not consider joining us.

Types of volunteering opportunities

Arts and Crafts Assistants

Working alongside people we support, making jewellery and recrafting fashion for our shops.


Providing invaluable one-to-one support to the people we work with - in the community, in our residential homes and in their own homes.

Car Wash Assistants

Supporting our busy social enterprise car wash, which provides employment for some of the people we support.


Joining our dedicated team of minibus or car drivers who transport the people we support to a variety of activities.

Event Marshalling

Helping with our challenge events, directing cyclists en route or serving at food stops.


Becoming part of our Fundraising Department, which needs to raise £10m each year to run Norwood’s services. You can work as part of our fundraising team or you can join one of the committees that support our Events and Challenges programme.


Helping maintain the gardens and play areas around our buildings.

Group Work Assistants

Working alongside our staff to support the groups we run for children and young people in our family centres.
