All new volunteers must complete an application form and give permission for a DBS Check which is required for both volunteers working in the hospital or as a trustee. Once this process is completed volunteers will receive an induction and training for the role they have agreed to undertake.
New volunteers are always welcome. However it is not always possible for a new volunteer to join their first choice of service as the relevant rota may be oversubscribed - in this case we will endeavour to find an alternative role and with your permission add you to a list of ad-hoc volunteers who may be called on to help with events or to plug gaps in the rota for holidays or other absences.
Unfortunately, our organisation is not structured to enable us to offer work placements. Please contact the Volunteer Office at University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire on 024 7696 4000.
