DUE TO THE ONGOING SITUATION WITH COVID-19, WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER ANY WORK EXPERIENCE OR COLLEGE PLACEMENTS THIS YEAR.

We are thrilled that you're interested in volunteering at Hopefield Animal Sanctuary and we'd like to thank you for your interest. During these strange times, we are only looking to fill long-term placements within our organisation, and for specific roles that we have available. If you are not successful with one position, please do not let that put you off applying for a different one - spaces are limited, however we will try to accommodate as many people as possible!

Corporate Volunteering

We do offer corporate volunteering days, however, being a charity, we cannot fund the work that's being undertaken e.g. materials etc, so ask for organisations to bring funding along with them.

We can offer days without bringing funding, but the tasks that we'll be able to give you will be limited.

Please contact us at volunteering@hopefield.org.uk.
