Join the Team


Shiloh is an inspiring place where volunteers are supported to help make a lasting difference in people’s lives. We are very proud of our achievements, especially that in 2018 we received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.                                                                                   

It is a significant award which really highlights the impressive ongoing commitment and dedication of our volunteer team.

We really value everyone who gives up their time to serve others and you are invited to join us.

If you join us, you will be joining other volunteers who make up the backbone of an enthusiastic team of people who are here because they want to and are able to make a difference to people’s lives and well being.

Our staff and volunteer teams are made up of people from different beliefs and faith’s, so all are very welcome to apply – and (it’s worth mentioning again!) you will be joining the  award-winning team recognised with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service!
