How to get involved
Volunteering is a very rewarding experience and an invaluable resource to our Trust.
You can gain so much when you volunteer with us. Not only will you be doing something really worthwhile, you will also meet new people and gain valuable experience. Our volunteers are key to supporting the delivery of high quality care and offer an added dimension to the services we provide.
Volunteers bring time, energy, life experience and commitment. Their contribution has significant value and makes a real difference to individuals, the communities where we live and society overall.
The free time that our volunteers willingly give, helps support the delivery of our services and has never been more important. Their contributions help promote hope, recovery and social inclusion.
“I find having a volunteer in the workplace is vital as it supports clients, work colleagues and carers. I hope our volunteers enjoy all aspects of volunteering.” Gloucestershire Health and Care staff member.
Volunteering can help you to:
- meet new people
- gain new skills and experience
- improve your job prospects
- increase your confidence
- be an active member of your community
“I feel it is most worthwhile to support the Trust, to support the people involved, however they are involved.” Gloucestershire Health and Care volunteer.
