Any questions? Don't hesitate to ask. Here are a few FAQs:

  • Will I need references?

Yes – they help us confirm your identity. This is part of the application form.

  • Can I claim expenses?

Yes – we’ll ensure you’re not out of pocket through volunteering with us; we reimburse reasonable travel costs and other expenses.

  • Will I have contact with patients?

Hospital-based roles may involve interaction with patients and families. You should therefore be comfortable in a medical environment, sensitive to the feelings of patients, and aware of the working demands of staff.

If you have any other questions, please get in touch with us on 020 7618 1730 or email Simon:
