Volunteer Work

How do I get involved?

If you would like to volunteer in acute health and social care settings you will need to approach individual organisations. You can visit your Local Volunteer Centre who will have lots of information on local volunteering opportunities.

You could also contact your local Health and Social Care Trust. Details for the Human Resources departments can be found here.

Volunteering in Northern Ireland is co-ordinated through an organisation called Volunteer Now. For more information visit their website: www.volunteernow.co.uk
