Want to Volunteer?

'Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth ' -  1 John 3: 18

Volunteers are vital if churches and organisations in this county are to continue the valuable work that they do tackling poverty. We believe that everyone can have a role to play- whatever their age, gifts or experience. 
Never volunteered before or unsure where to start? Feel free to contact the charities below direct to arrange a visit, or contact Hannah Buck or Alice McGregor, our Development workers, if you would like to chat through where you might be best to start.

Transforming Notts Together is also looking for some volunteers- particularly to provide our Development Workers with administrative support and with the option of being trained up to run courses and support churches.

The organisations below are known to but completely independent of TNT- our role is simply to make it easier for you to get in touch with them.
There is a map on the right if you want to find places closest to you.
