 Could you join our growing team of volunteers?


"I love getting involved with the patients - I find it good fun and very rewarding..."

Scores of people from across Norfolk give up their time to volunteer with our Trust, fulfilling a wide
variety of roles, such as befriending, helping with rehabilitation activities, gardening and helping at
mealtimes. Volunteers can work with either adults or children through one of our Sure Start Children's
Centres, or can carry out administrative or 'behind the scenes' work if they prefer.

The benefits of volunteering with us can be very rewarding.  For some, volunteering can be a route to employment, or a chance to try something new which may lead to a career change. For others it's the

personal satisfaction of knowing you are helping patients have better experiences

We are incredibly grateful to all the volunteers who give up their time to support our staff as they deliver
care to our patients.
