The possibilities for volunteers to get involved in the work of the trust are endless. However you would like to help us, you can be sure that you are making a positive difference to everyone who walks through our door.
Volunteers at Frimley Health make a huge impact on the running of our hospitals and the wellbeing of our patients. We will take time to match your interests and skills with available opportunities so that we all benefit.
We have an enthusiastic team of over 500 valued volunteers working across the trust. Work patterns and time commitments vary. We ask that you are able to commit to a minimum of three hours a week over a minimum of a year, and any help and support you can give is greatly appreciated by staff and patients alike.
How do I get involved?
If you would like to be considered for a volunteering role with the Trust please complete the expression of interest form below. We will then invite you to one of our information sessions as soon as possible. These are held regularly at Frimley Park and Wexham Park hospitals.
We'll tell you all about the many volunteer roles available, how to apply, what you can expect to put in to the task and what you will get out of it. Each session lasts no more than an hour and at the end you will be given an application form to complete should you decide that volunteering at Frimley Health is for you. You will need to attend one of these sessions before applying to be a volunteer.
Unfortunately we can only accept your application if you are aged 16 or over.
You can also email - Samaira.firstname.lastname@example.org Please include your name, telephone contact number, which hospital you are interested in volunteering at and confirmation that you are aged over 16.
If you prefer you can write to: Information Session Registration, The Volunteers Office, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, Wexham Park Hospital, Slough, SL2 4HL. Please include the same details as in email contacts above.
After you have attended an information session and put in your application you will be invited for an interview. If successful we will need to make a few checks on your reference, ensure you are fit enough to help us and complete a DBS (Disclosing and Barring Service check).
After this you will be invited to a trust induction day before you can start.
Training and mentoring are provided in all areas so please don’t worry that you would be thrown in at the deep end!
