Volunteering opportunities

Become a Volunteer!

We would not be able to provide essential patient services without the incredible dedication and support of our volunteers.

Volunteering with us can be really rewarding. It gives you an opportunity to socialise, develop new skills and gain experience.  Our roles are varied and include; supporting our nurses with patient care, welcoming visitors as a receptionist or helping in one of our shops.  If these are not what you had in mind, you might like to offer your time to help us with administrative tasks in our offices, the maintenance of our beautiful gardens next to the lake or sorting donations in our distribution centre.

How does it work?

Decide how much time you would like to offer.  We will try to find a role that matches your availability, whether that’s regular hours weekly, monthly or ad hoc. Please also let us know if you have any particular interests, experience or a specialist skill that you’d like to put to good use.
