Join us as a volunteer and make a difference

Our volunteers have an incredible impact on our patients, carers and services as well as gaining skills and new opportunities themselves.
From roles including meeting and greeting to capturing patient experience and supporting therapeutic activities, the benefits are appreciated by everyone.
In addition to the benefits volunteers provide to others, our volunteers tell us that through the roles they undertake they personally gain:
  • Confidence and self esteem
  • Increased general health and wellbeing
  • Access to new contacts and networks

Some examples of how volunteers support our services:

  • Capturing patient feedback.
  • Supporting admin and reception functions.
  • Supporting activities provided on our wards.
  • Befriending and mealtime support.

In return we provide:

  • Appropriate training
  • Regular support
  • Out of pocket expenses

We want our volunteers to reflect the diversity of the people we support and we encourage and welcome applications from people across all our communities. 
So why not join us and make a difference to others and yourself?
