Become a volunteer

Volunteer applications are currently closed

Unfortunately, we're currently closed to new applicants. Don't worry, we'll be back soon.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and they give us their time for lots of different reasons. But they all have one thing in common: they all make our patients’ care and experience better.

We think they’re a pretty amazing bunch.

With roles like mealtime helpers and wayfinders, to admin support and patient companions, we’ve got something for everyone.

We're looking for someone special

We’re looking for kind and compassionate people, with energy, enthusiasm, and attention to detail. You need to be reliable, show initiative, and have the ability to listen and observe.

You also need to be eligible to work in the UK.

So, as long as you’re over 18 and you’ve got some time to spare, join our awesome army of more than 500 volunteers.

All we ask is that you commit to volunteering for four hours a week for nine months. 

What's in it for you

As well as the warm and fuzzies - that feeling you get when you’re doing something great - you’ll also meet lots of new people and also get some real-world experience, too.

Volunteer work looks brilliant on your CV, helping you get back into work or kick-start your career.

You could also get great discounts from shops and restaurants with your NHS ID.
