Youth Volunteering Programme


Working alongside the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and supporting the i.will campaign, we are developing opportunities 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 – 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 six month period at our Charing Cross Hosptial (W6, Hammersmith) site.

Recruitment is now closed for Charing Cross and Hammersmith Hospitals.

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.

The 2019 Summer Programme will open for recruitment for Hammersmith Hospital and Charing Cross Hospital in March 2019


While volunteering with us through the Youth Volunteering Programme, you can work towards the ASDAN Short Course in Volunteering
