The Voluntary Service
Our Voluntary Service is a phenomenal asset to PAHT. We are very proud of our 90 dedicated volunteers who are highly motivated and support our patients, staff and their families.
We offer a friendly, warm and hospitable environment enabling our volunteers to complement the work of our paid staff.

As a volunteer team we focus on:
- Making sure volunteering opportunities have an impact.
- Ensuring that our processes are accessible and inclusive; that there are opportunities for all, and volunteers reflect the local communities.
- Identifying existing good practice and developing a framework based on Investing in Volunteers.
We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds, aged 17 and over, who are compassionate, independent and enthusiastic. In return, we provide a wide range of exciting opportunities to meet others, learn new skills and most importantly, to make a difference to the lives of our staff and patients. Ultimately, our Volunteers are here to support the Trust in its day-to-day operation.
Our volunteer roles include:
- A new Compassionate Care (Namaste) volunteer role
- Meet and Greeters
- Ward Support
- Emergency Department support
- Administration Support
- Patient Panel
- Stoma Support
- Pets as Therapy
All our volunteers support our clinical and non-clinical staff in delivering exceptional care to our patients and supporting their families. We require a long-term commitment (12 months) of four hours a week from our volunteers.
