The Trust offers a wide range of specialist and general hospital services at their two main hospital sites, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital.
The Volunteering Services team would love to offer volunteering opportunities to care leavers within both hospitals. This would be a set placement in one of the hospitals of choice within the regular volunteering programme. You would start in a responder role, which is a very active role supporting different areas like delivering medication, helping patients to be discharged, wayfinding etc after which you would be able to develop into different roles.
Each hospital has a Volunteering Hub where volunteers come together to get briefed, trained, find information or have a cuppa with a biscuit during a break on their shift. The Volunteering Services team members are available to support during the Hub opening times from 9am till 5pm.
The Volunteering Services are not linked with the work experience department, but as volunteering is much more hands on, it actually gives a very good learning experience. They actively work on creating pathways for ‘volunteer to career’ several times per year.
