Volunteering with South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Volunteering with our Trust can be a rewarding and door-opening experience for anyone looking to; gain hands-on experience in their future profession, make a difference to the lives of those in their community, expand their knowledge while providing support to those working in mental health.
Volunteers of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds are already stationed around Staffordshire, Shropshire and Cambridgeshire helping our staff to live our Trust values.
How do I become a volunteer?
Firstly we’d like to know a little bit about you, your strengths and your areas of interest within the Trust. We have several bases you can volunteer with across Staffordshire and Shropshire such as:
- Redwoods Centre, Shrewsbury
- St George’s Hospital, Stafford
- George Bryan Centre, Tamworth
- Staffordshire Libraries (Barton under Needwood; Baswich; Brewood; Glascote; Holmcroft; Heath Hayes; Hednesford; Norton Canes)
SSSFT is now working with local communities to provide library services. These community libraries will be run by volunteers, managed by the Trust and supported by Staffordshire County Council’s library service.
SSSFT believes we should not only provide excellent clinical services for those that need them, but also support people to improve and maintain their mental wellbeing. Communities are very important for our wellbeing and we recognise that libraries provide a focus for local people to come together, as well as offering opportunities for learning, socialising and volunteering.
In order to continue to provide services, each library needs volunteers to take on a variety of roles. If you are interested, please contact email@example.com for more information or click here to download our application form.
The eight libraries concerned are;
Barton under Needwood; Baswich; Brewood; Glascote; Holmcroft; Heath Hayes; Hednesford; Norton Canes
