Volunteering for an NHS organisation or charity can be a great way to support the NHS and get involved in your local community. Some volunteer roles are one-off while others can last for a longer period of time. Local NHS Trust websites usually include details of how to get involved.
Volunteering programmes can equip individuals with the skills and confidence needed to progress in their career. Health Education England have recently partnered with Helpforce to expand their Volunteer to Career programme across Trusts and organisations to help volunteers go onto further education/training relating to Health and Care.
