The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service

We are honoured to have been recognised by The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This highly prestigious award is described by Buckingham Palace as an MBE for voluntary organisations and is a formal thank you from the very top!


It is truly an award for all our Volunteers, and we are very grateful for everyone that dedicates their time to NMC.


The award was presented to us in October 2017 by Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Gloucester.

Ongoing Opportunities

Connect Up

Can you spare a few hours to distribute some leaflets in your area to spread the word about our project to tackle loneliness and social isolation? If so, we’d love to hear from you! Contact Sarah or Elly: connectup@nmcentre.com or 01606 860911 We have regular Connect Up Drop In sessions. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to welcome the group and to help set up the room and refreshments. (You don't need to commit to all the sessions).

Do you have a skill or passion that you'd like to share? We offer a different workshop every month at NMC, and we're looking for some new ideas and leaders. Maybe you're a keen writer, enjoy hair styling, or you're handy with a paintbrush - whatever your skill and whether it's your career or a hobby, we want to hear from you! Previous workshops have included photography, gardening, mindfulness, pottery, African drumming, blogging and cyber security - so as you can see, a really varied and vibrant mix of activities! It's a platform for anyone wanting to present their skills and interests to a friendly and welcoming audience in a supportive environment. If you would like to find out more about leading or attending one of our workshops, please contact Denise: denise.boyall@nmcentre.com .

The 351 volunteers that support the NMC by giving their time, energy, skill and expertise are also very much an essential element of our community.
