Because we want to make every penny count towards the care of our special babies, we are always pleased to hear from people who would like to help us on a voluntary basis.

If you feel you could spare a couple of hours or more each week to help either in the office or maintain our beautiful grounds why not give us a call.

Alternatively, if you would be willing to help out for a few hours at various fundraising events we organise from time to time again why not give us a call.

We feel our volunteers are special people, they give their time willingly and are a significant element in the success of Zoë’s Place.

If you would like to join us give Sarah Jackson, our Volunteer Coordinator a call on 01642 457985.

By helping us as a volunteer we can ensure that more of the funds raised are chanelled into the care of our special babies.

Volunteers must be over 18 years of age.

Please note we only offer non-clinical volunteering opportunities, as our children require specialist one to one care
