Register your Interest

Are you physically fit? Do you enjoy getting out and about? Are you available 1-2 days a week? If so, this role could be for you. 

Link to Hope is a Christian charity with almost 30 years experience of reaching out a helping hand to poor and marginalised people in Eastern Europe and bring hope to people who would otherwise have none.

We have six furniture and charity shops to help raise funds - in Goring, Littlehampton, Portslade, Worthing, Rustington and Ferring. These have recently reopened after being closed during the COVID-19 lockdown.   

We now need more volunteers to help collect and deliver furniture on our vans. You will accompany the driver and:

  • Load and unload the van.
  • Collect donated furniture from homes.
  • Deliver furniture to customers.

There is no driving involved in this role (but we are also looking for drivers - see separate advert).


  • You don't need to have done this kind of work before. We welcome people from all kinds of backgrounds. 
  • You must be physically fit and able to lift furniture in and out of a van. 
  • You should be able to get to our offices in Park Road, Worthing as this is where we start our day. 


  1.  The chance to get out and about around the area.
  2.  The opportunity to gain experience to help with a job search, if that's relevant for you.
  3.  Meeting new people. 

Practical Considerations

We are taking all necessary precautions to keep our staff, volunteers and customers safe from COVID-19. We will train you in these procedures and provide full PPE.

When do I need to be available?

Details Ideally we are looking for people who can volunteer for 2 days a week but we are flexible so please get in touch if you're interested and we will try to help you fit this role around your other commitments.
