Why volunteer with us?

We don't have a fixed idea of who will want to help us out, but if you can sign up to our vision and values - we'll try and work something out with you. The kind of people who might want to volunteer with us might be:

  • People who want to share the knowledge and understanding they have developed by using a health or social service
  • People who want to understand more about how health and social services work - maybe wanting to get a job in health or social care?
  • People who have experience of caring for or looking after someone with a health difficulty
  • People who are interested in learning new skills or bringing their knowledge and skills
"The staff was very friendly and helpful. Especially Craig who was very easy to communicate with and sort some volunteering"
Caitlin, university graduate and volunteer
"Through volunteering, I have constantly felt like I'm doing something positive, and making a difference to health and social care."
Helen, student and volunteer
