It is fun!
People volunteer for many reasons – they may have recently retired, have time on their hands, some maybe service users who have time on their hands, some may be people who need the confidence to return to full time employment after a break. Students volunteer to gain valuable experience before starting medical studies, or other hospital related careers. And others volunteer to gain experince for a career change. The main thing is that you care about people and want to help.
It will also provide an opportunity for service users to get involved as volunteers, providing supervised work placement opportunities.
What roles can be carried out by volunteers?
the role of a volunteer is varied it could include:-
- Meet and greet
- Activities: games, cooking, art, music, quizzes, Christmas parties
- Helping the Trust with staff award events – functions etc
- Basic admin help – copying, filing, stuffing envelopes,
- Carry out some audits
- Helping service users complete the PET survey

Apply for a pack for an information pack, complete and return.
We will then meet with you and discuss your interests; after successful references, Occupational Health Clearances and a CRB check you will be invited to attend an induction day which will give you an opportunity to meet fellow volunteers.
Volunteers will then be matched to roles available at the time.
