Happy to help

We are seeking to recruit volunteers who are ‘Happy to Help’ in a variety of ways.  This role is very varied and could involve directing and escorting, meet and greet, helping with patient surveys, patient companionship, basic admin such as photocopying and filing, basic errands, helping with moves –light work only, helping the charity distribute posters and newsletters, helping the trust distribute posters leaflets etc. 

Volunteer with your therapy dog

Pets are known to help reduce stress, anxiety and help with loneliness and depression. We are delighted to have a partnership with Pets as Therapy and Therapaws who specially check all dogs for their suitability and temperament for the hospital environment. Therapy dogs make regular visits to the children’s ward and elderly wards. The dogs often help long term patients relax and chat about their own pets and help them feel that they are in a more normal, homely environment. 

Music Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers who play a musical instrument to come and play to help brighten up the day of patients and visitors around the hospital.  This may be on a ward, or in a busy waiting area.  This could be a regular commitment but could equally be a one off.  Either way we would love to hear from you.
