The special volunteer roles we set up in response to the outbreak of the pandemic have now come to an end. Recruitment for new volunteers is currently closed while we work closely with our hospitals to develop new ways they can help patients and trust staff.

The Royal Free Charity is fully committed to providing an environment in which volunteers are able to realise their full potential and contribute to the success of the charity regardless of their backgrounds or beliefs. We welcome applications from all volunteers who will be considered solely on their ability to carry out their roles.

Updates relating to returning to volunteering in our hospitals, new volunteering opportunities and the recruitment of new volunteers will be posted to this page. Updates will also be posted on our social media – so follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
