Imperial Health Charity works with Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in central and north-west London.

Following the enormous popularity of our Summer Youth Volunteering Programme, recruitment has opened for our term time programme which starts in September. We seek young people who live within a few miles of our hospitals to lend a hand on wards, offering friendly companionship to patients at the bedside, delivering meals at lunchtime and carrying out other useful tasks that help staff provide the best possible care. Please note we do not offer work experience.

Our Youth Volunteering Programme gives young people the opportunity to learn new skills and gain invaluable experience in a unique setting. We welcome local young people who are aged 16-21, whether young people who are interested in a future career in healthcare, or those who simply wish to support their local hospital. We give training and support to every young person we take on.

Applications close on 23 July. However, we will close applications earlier if we receive a very high number, so please encourage young people to apply well before the closing date.

 Applicants must be aged 16 by 25 August. We carry out Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks on all potential volunteers, to determine their suitability to volunteer in our hospitals.

Full details about the programme, key dates and how to apply can be found here.  Thank you for sharing this opportunity with your young people.
