 Become a volunteer with UHNM Charity


UHNM Charity supports the excellent work of University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust by enhancing facilities and providing added value. It's a registered charity that manages all money raised for, or donated to the hospital.

UHNM Charity supports patients, their relatives and friends, staff and local businesses and organisations to raise money for the hospital. The charity also works closely with the hospital to make sure that all departments are supported to spend every penny of the money raised on items that will directly improve patient care.

 Who we’re looking for

Anybody can become a UHNM Charity Volunteer, not just previous patients and their families, and you can volunteer at either the Royal Stoke University Hospital, or County Hospital in Stafford.

All we ask is you’ve got a friendly, can-do attitude, with an enthusiasm for our work, and a willingness to help others. 

We also ask that you'll be able to commit 3-4 hours per week in one session, over a minimum of 6 months. 

How does it work?

UHNM Charity volunteers will support us in providing a ‘meet and greet’ and information facility for the Charity in our hospital’s atriums and other key entrance points,  helping us connect more effectively with fundraisers staff, patients, carers and the public. You’ll also help with a range of other activities including accepting donations and completing appropriate documentation, swapping collection cans within the hospitals, and helping to promote our fundraisers work.

What you’ll get out of it

You’ll learn new skills, make new friends and be part of an amazing group of people. But above all, you’ll have the knowledge that you’ll be making a real difference in improving the experience of patients and their families at our two hospitals.
