Volunteer stories


Helen joined us four months ago as a volunteer, working with us to fundraise and helping out with special events. She’s here because she wants to be able to help people and give back to the community.
Whilst working here she has gained confidence and people skills and would describe Nottingham Women’s Centre as a ‘very loving and family orientated place’.

Once again we would like to thank all our volunteers at the Centre who help us to achieve such amazing things!



Have you ever met our volunteer Joelle? She’s been volunteering here at Nottingham Women’s Centre for 19 months, working in the fundraising team. When we asked her what she liked most about her role she answered: ‘Being a part of something that helps others, and supporting other women’. Thanks to her time here she has felt more empowered as a woman and is thankful for having met more people and gaining new experiences. Without volunteers like Joelle we would be nowhere so a massive thank you to anybody who has ever helped us out at the Centre.

Louise - volunteer

Louise has been volunteering with us in an administrative role at the Centre for the past 9 months. Inspired to do something useful to help women, she has found her volunteering has had a great effect on her confidence and self-esteem. As well as the other services at the Centre that she has found out about, she particularly enjoys the welcoming, non-judgmental atmosphere here.
