Volunteer

Our volunteers help us do more for the patients we support – giving their time and efforts to help us reach more people.

Minutes, hours, days, months – however much time you can give, you’ll be doing something extraordinary.

When volunteering for us, you’ll learn new skills, meet people, add to your CV, and of course make a crucial difference to our work helping patients.

Have a look at our available opportunities in the box, or please contact Simon with any queries.

Frequently asked questions about volunteering

  • Will I need references?

Yes – they help us confirm your identity and build up a better understanding of you and your suitability for roles. We’ll ask for references for all roles and ask you to supply this information on your application form.

  • What support will I get?

You’ll have a full induction with us, as well as training and support to help you feel confident in the role. We’re also always here for any questions and support throughout your volunteering for us.

  • Will I have contact with patients?

Our roles don’t have direct contact with patients. However, if the role is based in one of the hospitals we support, you’ll see and sometimes interact with patients and their families. You should therefore be comfortable in a medical environment, sensitive to the feelings of patients, and aware of the working demands of staff.
