Welcome to Volunteer Services at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and thanks for considering becoming a volunteer!

Jamie Wilcox

"We have over 600 different opportunities in the hospital and our volunteers collectively provide more than 3,000 hours of their time every week.

"The Trust is committed to engaging volunteers in meaningful roles that enhance our services and add value to the patient and family experience. As such, the Trust looks to ensure that volunteers are well placed, inducted, trained and supported throughout their volunteering to guarantee the best possible practice and service.

"All our volunteers love coming to the hospital to undertake their role, knowing that they are making a real difference to people's lives. Volunteers tell us all the time about the great work that is happening.

"We are proud of our volunteers and the enormous contribution they make. I look forward to your application and you joining the team."
