Volunteering

“To enable volunteers to have an effective voice, collaborate with us in the work we do and play a key and valued role in the organisation. To provide training, clear roles and support to enable volunteers to have a real impact on the organisation and to develop and take up opportunities. Our Involvement Centres will be hubs where volunteers are trained, supported and connected to a range of opportunities and where there is a community of peers who support each other and collectively improve the Trust.”

Our team supports volunteers across Nottinghamshire Healthcare in a wide variety of roles. Volunteers are involved in placements in services and improvement projects. They make a big difference in the lives of service users, carers and staff.
