About us

A great place to volunteer

We have a brilliant, active and highly valued team of more than 500 volunteers who give some of their time to make a difference for patients every week. We’re proud that Cambridge Universities Hospital (CUH) is a great place to volunteer.  Here’s why:

  • We create meaningful roles where volunteers have direct contact with patients and can see for themselves the difference they make
  • We provide free on-site parking, travel expenses (up to a 30 mile round trip), discounts for a range of local services and products and access to the Frank Lee sports and leisure facility  (see here)
  • We provide a comprehensive induction and optional on-going training opportunities
  • We appreciate volunteers’ service and attendance and acknowledge these with certificates, badges and celebration events
  • We have a dedicated team of staff in the Voluntary Services department to support our volunteers
  • We understand that each applicant’s motivation to step into volunteering is unique to them.
  • Volunteers join with staff in helping give our patients the best experience possible. Our values of Together-Safe-Kind-Excellent – apply equally to volunteers and staff.
