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.

We are currently open for volunteering applications to support two new roles in Wiltshire:

  • Volunteer Care Navigator – engaging in regular telephone calls to check in, encouraging and supporting with signposting to other local charities and organisations that might offer specific support and highlighting wellbeing activities.  You may also assist individuals attending sites by providing key information on access, parking and what they should expect on arrival – a known source of anxiety for those waiting to attend services for the first time.
  • Volunteer Group Facilitator – supporting activity groups and/or group meetings by using existing skills or experiences to support those attending, ensuring the groups are well run and promoted to those hoping to attend and supporting the group leader with administration and room set up.  The activities are likely to include things like art and gardening but may vary depending on the skills of the volunteers who come forward.

If you are interested in applying for one of these roles, please complete an application form and we will be in touch shortly.
