We’re working to shape the future of health and care through volunteering.
Helpforce are at the forefront of a national movement to improve the lives of NHS staff, patients and our communities through the power of volunteering. Backed by leading lights in the world of healthcare, we’re bringing together innovative thinking and trusted experience to make community-integrated healthcare the norm across the UK.
We’re a Community Interest Company (CIC) – which means we’re a non-profit organisation that’s committed to creating a better future in health and care.
To deliver our vision across the UK:
- We’re working with hospitals, healthcare workers and you to create the future of volunteering within the NHS.
How? With our devoted team, we’re building a Learning Network, creating frameworks and measuring the impact of volunteering in our hospitals.
- We’re scaling capacity for volunteering in the NHS for when we have the time to give, and when we find ourselves in need.
How? By working with partners and NHS Trusts we’re promoting the benefits of volunteering for all involved – helping them expand the range and quality of volunteer roles that are available.
- We’re making sure that health and care begins before you set foot in the hospital
How? Safe and reliable volunteers to navigate and accompany patients through their healthcare journey. Whether it’s a helping patients get up and mobile, collecting medications to support clinical staff or simply making a welcome cup of tea – there’s no end to the ways volunteers can make a difference.
