Volunteers play an important role within our services; their contributions allow us to enrich and extend the range of services we offer to patients, their relatives and carers.

Volunteering is a two way process; that of helping to meet and enhance the care of patients, their relatives and carers and to provide an avenue for members of the community to offer their services.

Join us and make a difference

We're looking for volunteers to enhance the mental health and community services we provide. If you have time to spare, have skills to share and enjoy meeting people, then we want to hear from you.

In return we will provide:

  • Appropriate training
  • Regular support
  • Out of pocket expenses

Our volunteers work in various settings including hospitals, clinics and in the community. We have many varied roles available in clinical and administrative settings.

Examples of volunteer roles include:

  • Health Walk Leader
  • Service Connector
  • Social Inclusion Assistant
  • Admin Assistant
  • Inpatient befriender

Investing in Volunteers

We are proud to have been awarded the Investing in Volunteers standard which is the UK quality standard for good practice in volunteer management. The UK Volunteering Forum awards the Investing in Volunteers standard and oversees the quality assurance process.
