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 two programmes a year - the Summer Programme and the Patient Engagement Volunteer Programme. 

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 and supporting the wards in Hammersmith and Charing Cross Hospitals. 

Recruitment for the Youth Volunteering Summer Programme is now CLOSED - we will open this role for applications again in spring 2020.

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 aim to open applications for this role in June 2019
