People talking languages Nova



At Nova, we believe in an inclusive approach to charity. Whether receiving our support, joining our visionary funding scheme or becoming a volunteer as part of our diverse team, everyone at Nova learns and grows in the process.

We’ve been positively impacting local people’s lives since 1983 and have always relied on volunteer support to do so. So, if you are passionate about social change and want to contribute to a better world for all, we’d love to hear from you.

Over 50% of our volunteers from 2009/2010 are now in employment, so we have an excellent track record of engaging people as learners and moving them on to voluntary and then paid positions. If you are generally interested in volunteering, please complete the application form.

We also welcome support from professionals across varying disciplines to support us in amplifying our work.
Do you have skills to share from a different world? Maybe you work in the business, creative or IT sector. We’re always looking for brilliant minds to help us make a difference.

Many of our volunteers go on to find employment and we welcome people with all kinds of skills (see list below).
