We need your help…

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our society, driving positive change and making a lasting impact on the lives of others. We are currently seeking individuals who are passionate about making a difference to join us in various roles. Whether you have a few hours to spare each week or are looking for a more long-term commitment, there are opportunities available for everyone.

If you have green fingers and time, consider volunteering at one of our gardens. Keeping our gardens in tip top shape is down to the tireless work and effort of our volunteers. Alternatively, if you have a talent for organizing events or coordinating projects, we would love to have you join our team as an event planner or project coordinator. Your skills will help us create memorable experiences and execute initiatives seamlessly.

If you have a flair for social media and digital communication, volunteering as a social media manager could be a great fit for you. You’ll have the opportunity to create engaging content, manage our social media platforms, and interact with our online community. Your skills in crafting compelling posts, scheduling content, and analyzing metrics will help us effectively share our mission, events, and success stories with a wider audience.

Another vital role is website development and maintenance. If you have experience in web design, coding, or content management systems, your expertise can greatly enhance our online presence. By volunteering as a website developer, you can contribute to creating an intuitive and visually appealing website that showcases RHSI work, highlights upcoming events, and provides valuable resources to our visitors.

For those who prefer working in an office environment, we have opportunities available for volunteers to assist with administrative and office duties. This may involve tasks such as data entry, organizing files, answering phone calls, or coordinating schedules. Your organizational skills and attention to detail will help ensure smooth operations and efficient management of day-to-day tasks.

No matter your skills or interests, there is a volunteer role that can align with your passion. By dedicating your time and energy to helping others, you will not only make a positive impact on their lives and benefit our socitey but also experience personal growth and fulfillment. Join our team of dedicated volunteers today and be a part of the transformative change we aim to create in our society.  Email us at
