Coronavirus response

Due to the overwhelming response to Hestia’s coronavirus crisis volunteering opportunities, it is with regret that we need to pause our recruitment to allow us to process the staggering amount of applications we have received.

At this point we are not going to take any further applications forward.

We are hoping that we can re-open the opportunities soon. If you would like to be alerted when our coronavirus crisis volunteering opportunities re-open, or to find out more about our other volunteering opportunities, please email [email protected].

We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who has expressed an interest in volunteering with Hestia.


We are continuing recruitment for other volunteer roles across Hestia's services to prepare for when we are able to deliver face-to-face support again. These roles can be found below.

After you've completed your application for one of our other volunteering opportunities, a member of our volunteering team will be in touch to discuss the time frame for the role, dependant on when social distancing measures have been lifted. 


You will be joining a team of almost 600 volunteers across London supporting adults and children for a life beyond crisis. Simply click on a role to start your application process. 

There are many different volunteering roles available. If there is something specific you want to do, we can create a role that suits your skills and abilities. 

You can also find out more about what it's like to volunteer and read some of the stories of our volunteers.
