Volunteering roles

Meet and Greeters: As the first point of contact in the lobby areas, you will be directing people to amenities, encouraging the use of feedback and help make service users and carers visit as smooth as possible - you also can make someone’s first experience of HPFT a good one.

Gardening: Providing gardening activities as a way of improving mental health and wellbeing. You will carry out general gardening duties or helping an Occupational Therapist with service users in the garden spaces.

Ward visitors: Making someone’s stay a little easier and less lonely by reading together, playing games, initiating, and engaging in pleasant and reassuring conversation. 

Music ward visitors: Bringing joy through music to the lives of service users. All that is required is a passion and desire to sing and play to brighten someone else's day.

Admin support:  You will be supporting staff to cope with different admin demands. A typical admin role involves scanning, photocopying, putting letters in envelopes and may also involve inputting data or checking data on a data base

Activities supporter: Usually helping the Occupational Therapist with wellbeing activities, crafts, and fitness. You will provide service users a reason to engage with others, a focus, stimulation, and an opportunity to do something they enjoy. 

Specialist support groups: This can be community based and it is an opportunity for you to mentor, listen and support our service users/carers by sharing knowledge, experience, and emotional help.

Check and Chat: Enjoy chatting with service users/carers over the phone from the comfort of your home to help alleviate loneliness and inspire confidence.

Community responder: You will be providing simple yet invaluable support to those who need it most by dropping off medication, collecting food bank parcels and delivering to the service users’ home.
