Please take time to explore our webpage to find out about volunteering in our Trust.


Volunteering is a way of becoming more involved in your local community and the hospital. Volunteers are placed across the Trust, participating in a variety of ways all contributing to improving the patient experience. They are an integral part of the Trust and are highly valued by staff, patients, service users and visitors.









We welcomes volunteers from all walks of life. So if you are over 16, enjoy helping others and would like to develop your own skills and abilities then we offer a range of opportunities to suit all skills and aspirations.

To become a Trust Volunteer please contact us for more details or apply using the registration form below.

We ask that you commit to at least one year volunteering, so we can develop a long-lasting and meaningful role for you.  Volunteers can claim out of pocket travel expenses.

Volunteers do not carry out (or shadow) clinical work or short-term work experience placements. For these placements contact

Volunteers in the Southern Trust enhance the quality of care or service provided to service users.  Our team of volunteers provide extra support to patients, just as friends or family members might do, making the service users’ experience more comfortable and a little friendlier for everyone.
