There are many volunteering opportunities within Colchester League of Hospital and Community Friends. You may be working in one of the 5 shops located at Colchester General Hospital, the tea bar at Essex County Hospital, or the cafe in the Primary Care Centre. We also offer ward newspaper rounds and ward shop trolley rounds. Once volunteers are familiar with the hospital layout, there may be an opportunity to become a hospital guide directing visitors around Colchester General Hospital. Volunteers would normally start with one 4 hour shift per week, full support and training is provided, and bus fares or mileage can be reimbursed, or free parking arranged. Once experienced there is always the opportunity to give more of your time if you want to.
If you would like to volunteer, please complete and submit the online application form, or download and print off an application form and return it to us at Colchester League of Hospital & Community Friends, Primary Care Centre, Turner Road, Colchester, CO4 5LP.
