The health and social care agenda is a huge one and one which is seldom far from the headlines these days.

There are lots of opportunities to get involved in volunteer opportunities in both health and care whether you want to support people at home in the community (eg our Hospital discharge scheme – “Welcome Home”) or whilst they are in hospital (through the Community Hospital Befrienders Scheme)

On this page, you can find details of the various schemes we are directly involved with and you can find many others on the do-it website.

And if you are interested to find out more about the crucial role volunteers can play in health and care, this video about the ‘Living Well’ work, pioneered in Cornwall, will help explain it.
