Volunteering

 

Women's Conversation Club Volunteer

altThe Women's Conversation Club in Sheffield is always looking for female volunteers to help out at our sessions.

New volunteers will receive a short induction / training session.

Other opportunities

Many of NRC's services are underpinned by the use of volunteers; however, our capacity to induct, support and train volunteers changes as funding for some projects ends and funding is secured for new areas of work. If you are interested in volunteering for NRC and feel you have particular skills to offer in relation to one of our services, please get in touch via the 'Contact Us' email and we will let you know if we have any current appropriate opportunities.
