Youth Volunteering Programme


Working alongside the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and supporting the i.will campaign, we have developed an opportunity for 16 – 25 year olds to get involved and volunteer at Hammersmith and Charing Cross Hospitals. This is generously supported by the Pears Foundation.

We offer a summer programme and Patient Engagement Volunteer volunteering opportunities.

Youth Volunteering Programme – Summer Programme

The Summer Programme allows you to flexibly volunteer for 30 hours over an 8 week period between July and August.

The Summer Programme allows you to get stuck into hospital life as a volunteer, assisting patients with activities and conversation, supporting the wards at Hammersmith Hospital and our work with the Friends of Hammersmith.

Recruitment for the 2019 Summer Programme a Hammersmith and Charing Cross Hosptials will open in March 2019 so please check back with us then!

Youth Volunteering Programme – Patient Engagement Volunteers

The Patient Engagement Volunteer role allows you to get involved within Hospital life as a volunteer, be a kind and friendly face around the hospital, spend time with patients by engaging them in conversation and activities while developing your own skills and gaining experience within a ward-based environment. 

The role allows you to volunteer for 2 hours a week, across a six month period at our Charing Cross Hosptial and Hammersmith Hosptial sites.

Recruitment is now closed for Charing Cross and Hammersmith Hospitals - we expect to recruit for this role in the autumn of 2019
