Volunteering at EPUT

To date we have 230 volunteers who give up their time each and every week by befriending, feeding and reading to our patients. Additionally volunteers work in gardens, shops, sit on committees and interview panels, in fact there is very little that they do not do in their desire to help.

The role of the volunteer is very highly-valued and respected and it is inspiring to know that despite the harsh economic climate, the volunteers are still devoting their time towards making a difference.

Indeed, their dedication and time is priceless; their commitment to improving patient care is invaluable.

If you’re interested in volunteering please read our frequently asked questions or take a look at the current opportunities below.

Watch why our Volunteers enjoy supporting the Trust through volunteering, the benefits to both themselves and the Trust and why you should join our growing number of volunteers.
