Get involved

There are many ways you can volunteer with us; from helping spread the word about our services to getting hands-on with some of our exciting projects.

Research shows that volunteering brings a whole host of benefits: it boosts mental health, enhances your career opportunities, improves your social life and increases your self-esteem. All while doing good for others!

It’s your help that enables HWF to continue making a difference.

We have added some specific roles to our vacancies page.

Media volunteer

Media volunteers are at the heart of our charity. We frequently get asked by journalists if we have people willing to be interviewed to share their story and experiences after receiving our services. Having a real-life personal account ensures maximum engagement with our audience and increases their incentive to support our work in the future, so we can go on helping healthcare workers and their families.

We’ll never share your details without your permission, and it’s up to you whether your quotes remain anonymous or not. We will fully support you before and after sharing your story, and can provide any media training you may need!

Email to find out more.

Awareness volunteer

Can you help us spread the word about HWF by distributing our posters and flyers? We’re looking for volunteers who can help us by displaying HWF literature in their local healthcare setting, business and/or community groups. This role is vital in spreading awareness of our work, ensuring that we can support as many healthcare workers as possible. Email to find out more.

Fundraising volunteer

Here at the Healthcare Workers’ Foundation, we are reliant on volunteer fundraisers to raise vital funds to continue our important work. This could be anything from organising a bake sale in your garden or doing a sponsored run in aid of us, to hosting a charity ball with local businesses and more!

Every single penny raised - and pound donated - will go straight to supporting the healthcare workforce’s wellbeing. To discuss your fundraising idea and how we can support you, email
