Volunteer with us

Our 300 plus volunteers are part of the lifeblood of the RD&E, giving their time, experience, enthusiasm and compassion to help others. The roles are as varied as the wonderful people who join us; from meeting & greeting patients and helping our Chaplaincy, Charity and League of Friends, to befriending, pet therapy, hospital radio and more.

Whether it’s brightening someone’s day with a special song, kind word or simply a smile, our volunteers make a real difference to our patients and their family and friends everyday. It's not all one way; volunteering with us can be hugely rewarding, bringing excitement, learning and great companionship.
