Role descriptions - volunteers

Some of the following volunteer roles have been provided at York Hospital for years – others are recent responses to requests for help from staff. Some groups of volunteers are large with plenty of spaces for new members. Others are small with fewer openings for new members. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, it also depends on whether the role you are most interested in happens at a time when you can be regularly available. Whatever your situation, we will do our best to find you a place!
