Other people who make Urban Hope happen

Volunteers and sessional workers


Our permanent staff team is very small but we are supported by an amazing group of sessional workers (who help us during busy times and run specialist workshop), and volunteers who give their time every week to help run evening drop-ins and one-off events.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email
