Volunteering and Vacancies



If you have a few hours to spare please consider volunteering for us. There is a wide range of ways you can help HART, some more mucky than others but all vital!

Please contact: volunteer@hartwildlife.org.uk for more information.

Animal Carers

We are always looking for people who can volunteer regularly, from as little as one morning or evening a week, to help with the everyday duties that are involved with looking after and feeding  the injured and sick animals. Please bear in mind some of this hands-on work is cleaning cages and hutches; it can be pretty dirty work! Find out more on the Volunteer's Stories page.


We are currently looking for someone to co-ordinate our fundraising efforts - being the point of contact to keep everyone up to date and working together. Do you have a few hours free a month, and would like to really make a difference to the future of HART?

We are also looking for people to be involved in regular fundraising. This could be helping with stalls at fetes and shows, or organising your own fundraising event such as a coffee morning or sponsored walk. We are always looking for new fundraising ideas, so please get in touch.

We currently need volunteers to work in our shops in Alton. If you can give a few regular hours, or ideally a day in a week, please get in touch, either at the hospital or call into one of our shops.

Casualty Collections

We need volunteer drivers from all areas who can pick up small casualties from their local area and bring them over to us, as we often get calls from people who have found a casualty but are unable to bring it to us. Unfortunately we do not have enough staff, vehicles or time to collect them all, and so volunteer drivers are an essential part of the service we offer.


We are always looking for people to overwinter lateborn hedgehogs at their home, there will be training given. For more information, please see our fostering page.

Due to insurance stipulations all volunteers must be aged at least 16 years old.

Membership Secretary

The role of membership / donor officer involves looking after both new and existing members – sending out the appropriate communication and membership cards, as well as thanking donors from a variety of sources.  The role requires an hour or so a week, to check for new member applications both online and at the hospital, as well as sending out membership renewal reminders. It’s incredibly rewarding helping out the hospital, ensuring they receive the donations necessary to continue all their hard work!
