Volunteer stories

See what existing volunteers have to say about volunteering at LPT.

"I enjoy doing something positive to help patients and staff on the wards."

Volunteering opportunities

During the Covid-19 crisis many volunteers have been temporarily stood down to minimise the risk from the virus.  We are now in the process of welcoming them back and looking to recruit again.

Please see below our current volunteering opportunities, where you will find the role descriptor, application form or ability to make further enquiry.

We’re always adding more opportunities, so be sure to check back on a regular basis.
