Volunteer at the Royal Free London

Become a Royal Free Charity volunteer and help our patients

The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust is supported by a team of hundreds of dedicated and skilled volunteers recruited and managed by the charity. Volunteers work closely with staff and patients to ensure that every patient’s experience is the best it can be. They complement the work of hospital staff and help us provide a welcoming environment.

“Volunteering gives you back more than you give out. I love seeing the comfort, pleasure and relief on patients' faces when you know you have helped make their day a little bit better.”

Volunteers can improve the lives of others by befriending a dementia patient, helping hospital visitors navigate the many miles of corridors in our hospitals, chatting with patients while serving coffee and teas, creating beautiful gardens for patients to enjoy, selling treats to those who can’t leave their ward...and much, much more.
