Could your organisation use a volunteer from NHS England?
NHS England wants to hear from organisations with a volunteering programme that might be interested in promoting their opportunities to its staff.
NHS England has an established Employee Volunteering Policy which lets colleagues take up to five days paid leave each year to volunteer. It has seen a steady increase in the number of people who take employee volunteer leave over the last few years and interest continues to grow. Two thirds of its staff volunteer as individuals rather than in teams, and many supplement the five days with their own time. NHS England is keen to help more employees use their volunteer leave, and regularly receives feedback that people would like more information about potential volunteer roles.
If you have a volunteering programme in place, or you are aware of other organisations that do, and if you can offer roles nationally and would like to find out more about being featured on the NHS England intranet, please contact [email protected].
