We’ve gathered together some information, resources and training support on this page for volunteers. If you need further help, you can email us, or phone 0800 052 1415. If required, we can arrange for you to visit us in one of our Involvement Centres (Nottingham and Ollerton).
All Nottinghamshire Healthcare Volunteers are supported to achieve the National Volunteer Certificate. This is a standardised package of training courses that are free to access for volunteers within the Health and Care sector. They are designed to help develop knowledge and abilities and enhance a volunteer’s existing skills. They are aligned with the National Volunteer Certificate standards produced by Helpforce and help contribute towards a National Framework for Volunteering. Once a volunteer completes the training, they are required to evidence a set number of hours of volunteering to then apply for the National Volunteer Certificate.
