Your gift of time can achieve so much for local patients and the hospitals that treat them. There are many ways to get involved to suit you and fit your commitments. From helping out annual events run smoothly, putting your admin abilities to great use in the office, or using your people skills to talk to community groups about the charity, there really is something for everyone. What's involved? On signing up to volunteer, our events team will ask what availability you have. For some events, we'll need all volunteers for the full duration. For other events, we may be able to add in shifts and share the load. All we ask is that you let us know what you can commit to, well in advance. Our events are all subject to thorough risk assessments, to ensure the safety of all attending. We also have staff members who are first aid trained and often have an external first aid team on site too. We'll contact you before the event to ask for any safety requirements needed for you to work the event safely and send out a kit list to keep you comfortable during the event. Can anyone volunteer? We welcome volunteers from the age of 16 upwards, but all under 18 year olds must have the consent of a parent or guardian. Will volunteering benefit me? Our volunteers find their work with us really rewarding. Here's what you can expect from your time with us: The chance to meet like-minded people and develop lasting relationships A sense of purpose and knowledge that you're making a differenceThe chance to develop new skills and stand out on job applications, plus a reference for employment upon requestFun! We organise a range of different events, all of which are attended by supportive and inspiring people. Can I volunteer with a friend? Yes! We would love to have you and your friends join us at our fundraising events. Please let our team know that you are looking to volunteer together. We will always try our best to keep you together during the event. Please be aware there may be instances this may not be possible, especially at events where there has been low interest in volunteering or people have had to drop out on short notice. Sign me up!
