Help out in our shops

We have 10 volunteer-run charity shops across the region – in Brighton, Hove, Lewes, Peacehaven, Rottingdean and Woodingdean. They generate vital income by selling everything from vintage clothes and furniture to electrical goods and children’s toys. They’re a great place to volunteer if you want to make new friends and get some retail experience. If you can spare a few hours once a week, then pop into any of our shops for a chat, see available roles or get in touch via

Help out in our warehouse

Thousands of goods are donated to us every month – and they all need to be transported, sorted, listed and sold. The dedicated team of volunteers at our warehouse in Hove do all of this and more, including trading goods via our online stores and in our warehouse shop. The warehouse is an amazing place with curiosities at every turn – great for volunteers who prefer to be ‘behind the scenes’, have a keen eye for collectibles, or simply enjoy working as part of a friendly team.

Help out with fundraising and events

Every Martlets event is powered by volunteers. From dinners and dances to fun runs and challenges – you’ll find our volunteers doing everything from greeting guests to serving refreshments. Events are spread throughout the year – you can help out at all of them or one of them, it’s flexible and completely up to you. We also rely on fundraising volunteers to regularly help with things like maintaining our collection boxes around the city.

Help out at the hospice

Volunteers are a crucial part of our hospice. They run the cafe, provide treatments in our pamper suite, run arts and crafts activities, look after the garden, drive patients to and from appointments and much, much more. We see our hospice as a peaceful oasis in Hove – a positive, uplifting hub for the local community. If you’d like to be a part of it and give something back, check available roles or get in touch on 01273 273400 or
