The registration and application process

The first step is to register your interest to become a volunteer. Registration of interest must be made online and you will need an email address.

The first step is to register your interest to become a volunteer. Registration of interest must be made online and you will need an email address.

We open recruitment at different times of the year. If you have registered your interest then we will contact you via email when recruitment opens, and when an appropriate role becomes available. Please note that the application process is competitive and will include an interview and background checks. 

The process from a successful interview to starting volunteering takes approximately four to six weeks. This depends on how quickly paperwork is submitted, how long the DBS check and health check take and the timing of the core training.

All applicants will need to:

  • Provide three suitable ID documents and complete an enhanced DBS check
  • Complete a health assessment survey and, where required, have an occupational health discussion to ensure that it is safe for you to volunteer in a patient-facing role
  • Provide details of a professional or educational reference
  • Complete three online mandatory training modules
  • Attend a core training event (currently online)
  • Attend an in person briefing, induction and shadowing shift

Trust values

The Trust values demonstrate the standard of care and experience our patients and members of the public should expect from our services. These values also underpin the role of volunteer at the Trust. The values are PROUD:

  • Putting patients first
  • Responsive to, and supportive of, patients and staff
  • Open, welcoming and honest
  • Unfailingly kind, treating everyone with respect, compassion and dignity
  • Determined to develop our skills and continuously improve the quality of care.
