Who We Are
Hailsham Volunteer Hub is a project run by Hailsham Foodbank, helping local organisations get the voluntary help they need.
Whether you want a regular slot each week or just a one off placement, we have a wide range of opportunities on offer. Come in and have a chat to Nicky, who co-ordinates the hub, and she’ll do her best to find something suited to you.
What We Do
We match people who want to volunteer with volunteer opportunities within charities and community organisations in Hailsham and the surrounding villages.
The Hailsham Volunteer Hub brings local volunteering opportunities into one space.
Meet the team
I have been the HR Director for a telecoms company in Newhaven since 2001. Having been a volunteer myself for a variety of local organisations in different roles over the last 12 years, I understand the benefits that volunteering can bring – giving you new skills, improving your personal well-being and that it can also be a lot of fun! I have also recruited volunteers and have seen what a positive contribution they make to the running of local charities and community groups.
I had been thinking about setting up a volunteer Centre locally for a while and when the opportunity came to partner with the Hailsham Foodbank and set up a volunteer hub as one of their projects, I was keen to take this forward.
I have volunteered at Hailsham foodbank since September 2012 and been manager since February 2014. I go to ChristChurch Hailsham, which is one of the Crosslink Churches who are our trustees. I also co-facilitate Hailsham Community Groups Forum, alongside Jenny Seale, and it was from here that the need for a volunteer hub in Hailsham was identified. With our central location in town and our natural footfall of people we were happy to take this forward and it fits in well with our more than food projects with volunteering benefitting peoples health and wellbeing.
If you’ve never volunteered before we are here to talk through what the best way forward is for you.
If you are an organisation looking for volunteers we can help you put together role descriptions and help you with your search.
