Current volunteering opportunities

  • Telephone feedback volunteer in Abingdon – We are looking for a volunteer to help the service gain feedback on the patient experience. The role will involve telephone conversations with patients who have been recently discharged from the service. These individuals are unable to provide feedback online but have important views that we are keen to capture. The conversations will be conducted from an office with a clinical member of staff present and are a vital resource to support service development.
  • Ward Support – Wallingford Community Hospital and Didcot Community Hospital: Volunteers getting involved with the wards mainly assist by engaging patients in conversation, activities or supporting day to day functions. Support the ward clerk with administration duties, completing surveys and facilitating visitors if need be.

Eating Disorder Service Support Volunteers

Volunteers are currently being sought to support the adult inpatient and community eating disorder service in Wiltshire. Based at Savernake Hospital in Marlborough, Volunteers can support the MDT team in many aspects of specialised eating disorder treatment.

Opportunities to support the nursing team within the inpatient ward, therapeutic group programme, administration support, waiting list telephone support calls and support with activities that promote general wellbeing. These roles are extremely valuable and make a great difference to patients, family and carers and the service provision.

Are you interested in a career in specialised mental health services or looking to gain experience? The Wiltshire Eating Disorder Service are participating in the Volunteer to Career programme which provides the Volunteer with a steppingstone into working within the NHS. Throughout the Volunteer to Career programme, you will gain experience, observe how the service supports adults receiving treatment in the community and within an inpatient environment and be able to demonstrate essential and desirable skills required to go on to apply for further paid roles or training.
