I've only been volunteering at Queen's for a short while but I can already see how kind the people are and the warm environment that they've created here. Everybody treats me kindly no matter if they're ward sisters, other volunteers, nurses or doctors and this is a huge testament to how wonderful the people in this hospital are! The patients are full of spirit even though they're fighting the hardest battles! I like to put a smile on their face and they always put a smile on mine! I'm very happy volunteering at Queen's!

Join us: take part in one of our recruitment weeks

We hold recruitment weeks every two months for anyone interested in becoming a volunteer. You can join one of our sessions online. During these recruitment weeks we will cover our on-boarding process, discuss the roles that are available, plus support and complete your application pack.

All volunteer interest is reviewed during these recruitment weeks, which allows us to be available to answer any questions you have regarding volunteering, recruitment, your application and the roles currently available.
