Volunteering

“It is so simple to make a difference, you just have to care.” Georgia – Mildmay volunteer

 

Volunteering at our hospital in Shoreditch makes a huge difference to those in our care. It is also very rewarding for volunteers themselves, providing opportunities to gain new skills and experiences, meet new people, pass on knowledge, become involved in the community, and have fun.

We have a range of volunteering opportunities available throughout the week, including opportunities in the evenings and at weekends. These include:

  • spending time with patients providing companionship and support on the wards or in our Day Therapy service
  • helping to run groups such as the music group, the yoga group or the gardening group
  • supporting the chaplaincy service
  • providing administrative support
  • helping out with vital fundraising work.

If you are interested in volunteering at Mildmay’s London Hospital then you can email our Volunteering Manager Dominic at volunteer.coordinator@mildmay.org.  You can find more information in our Mildmay Volunteering Leaflet, and the application form to volunteer can be downloaded here.

Once we have received your application form you will be invited into the hospital for an informal interview .  Following this you will attend an induction and shadowing session which will equip you with the information and skills you need to start volunteering at Mildmay.

We ask that you are intending to volunteer for at least 6 months. This regular commitment ensures that both you and Mildmay get the most from volunteering, but we are also flexible and understand that there may be some weeks when you cannot attend. We provide a free meal and can refund your travel expenses.
