Our volunteers are amazing! Giving their time and their skills, they help us improve patient experience across 11 London boroughs and Hertfordshire. As a part of so many of our teams, volunteers make a huge difference to our patients and staff in a variety of roles.

Volunteering is a brilliant way to make a difference in your community, meet new people and gain great skills.

What do volunteers do at CLCH?

Our volunteers do a range of roles to support teams across the Trust. You could be making someone’s day at one of our inpatient wards, supporting a patient to share their experience and help us improve a service, driving our nurses to their appointments to help them reach more patients at home and everything in between! We have roles to suit all skills and interests.

You can read more about what our volunteers get up to and check out our latest roles before applying.

Anne Robson Trust and Central London Community Healthcare  

Central London Community Healthcare are proud to be working in partnership with the Anne Robson charity to create an end of life volunteer service. The charity enables hospitals and now community NHS trusts to set up and run teams of Butterfly Companion Volunteers to provide bedside companionship to patients in their final days and hours, and emotional support to the patients’ visitors. The work these volunteers do is vital in supporting people facing the end of their life and those around them.

The Anne Robson Trust also runs a telephone support service. If you or someone close to you is dying, you can call on 0808 801 0688 and leave a message and they will reply on the same, or by the next working day. All UK calls are free and confidential.

We have a limited number of work experience placements. Head to this page to find out more. 

CLCH staff can volunteer! We’d just make sure you weren’t volunteering in the same team as you do for your paid role.

Having a criminal record doesn’t automatically mean you can’t volunteer with us. We’re committed to safeguarding those that use our service, so we carry out background checks on certain volunteer roles.

We actively promote equality of opportunity for all and welcome applications from a wide range of applicants. Each case is considered individually, on its merits and we do not discriminate unfairly against any applicant based on a conviction or criminal record information disclosed to us.

As we’re a community healthcare organisation, volunteers must be based in the UK.

From submitting your application to your induction day, it can take about 8 weeks. This makes sure you have everything you need to get started and you have plenty of time to ask questions.

Volunteers can claim travel expenses and a contribution to lunch if you’re volunteering for more than 4 hours at a time. This is all in line with our expenses policy.
