Volunteer

VolunteerWe are supported by over 600 volunteers who commit their time and energy to enable us to provide vital care for our patients. So it’s no exaggeration to say that we would not be able to run successfully without our generous volunteers!

We have an amazing mix of volunteers; from those who come on board for a few months to learn new skills, to volunteers who have been with us since we opened 30 years ago. This diversity is something we really value as each person brings something different to their roles.

Within the fundraising team, you can volunteer in a variety of different ways;
