Volunteering for us
Volunteers play an important role in our Trust by providing non-clinical support to our healthcare professionals.
To volunteer you must be over 18 and live locally. We cover the boroughs of Merton, Sutton, Kingston, Richmond and Wandsworth and recruit people from a wide range of backgrounds.
- To support their local Mental Health NHS Trust
- to meet people and make new friends
- to learn or refresh their skills
How much time can I give?
