Who we’d like to volunteer with us

Volunteers help us to deliver countless services and events for patients, their families, carers, professional clinicians and our local community.

To keep us heading in the right direction, we need compassionate, community-focused people with an empowering spirit to step forward and offer to get involved. So, what are the key characteristics that we’re looking for in a volunteer? Well, we can’t speak for everyone, but we’re looking for people who are:
