Volunteers are incredibly generous with their time and help us to provide the best patient care. We are very grateful for their time and energy and thank all those who support us in this way.
What does volunteering involve?
Volunteers assist visitors at our main entrance desk and outpatients departments, help in our cafe and offer administrative support.
All volunteers must be over the age of 18. You would need to be able to work on your own as well as with members of staff. A friendly yet professional approach, good communication skills and the ability to work effectively with all types of people are essential. Computer skills may be required for some roles.
Most volunteers give between two and four hours of their time each week. However, roles vary and we do our best to make sure they fit around our volunteers' other personal commitments.
How do I become a volunteer?
To become a volunteer you need to complete an application form and provide the names of two referees. Following a short interview we will undertake a criminal records check and ask you to complete a health questionnaire. Please note this process can take a few weeks to complete before you can start your voluntary duties.
Completed application forms may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to the FREEPOST address below:
