Welcome to Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals and thank you for your interest in volunteering.

We value our volunteers highly and greatly appreciate the work you do for us.

As a volunteer, you will become part of a team dedicated to helping support our efforts to provide a high quality healthcare and patient service user experience. It is also a great opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills or enhance existing ones.

Whatever time you can spare will be a great help. From administration to portering to helping as a mealtime support volunteer, every role is equally valuable.

On these pages, you can find out more about the services we provide and how you can join us.

If you have any questions about volunteering or wish to enquire about the kind of roles on offer, please contact Voluntary Services at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
