Volunteer with us

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

Volunteering with us is really rewarding. It gives you an opportunity to socialise, develop new skills and gain experience.

What you can do to support us 

Decide how much time you would like to offer and let us know. We will try to find a role that matches your availability, either regular hours weekly, monthly or ad hoc. 

Our volunteer roles are varied and include; supporting our nurses with patient care, welcoming visitors as a receptionist or serving customers 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.

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.
