Volunteer Roles

All of our roles are non-clinical, the majority of which are patient-facing and all focus on enhancing patient experience by supporting our patients, their families and staff.

We recognise the valuable life experiences, skills and qualities that volunteers bring to the roles they support. Our volunteers compliment the work of our paid staff. Our vision is to be the best place to volunteer; growing our volunteer team and continuing to represent the diversity of the communities we support. Everybody has something unique to offer and here at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust we want to enable you to find your perfect role.
