What do we mean by volunteering?
Volunteering is a choice undertaken of our own free will, a choice to give time or energy to get involved, help out and participate in our communities.
Volunteering contributes to our personal, community and national wellbeing.
Effective volunteering will be:
- flexible and responsive
- enabled and supported
- sociable and connected
- valued and appreciated
- meaningful and purposeful
- recognises diversity
See our Volunteering activities page for a list of volunteer roles within our hospitals.
Generally we ask for commitment of 2-3 hours per week for a minimum of 6 months.
