Volunteering | Friends of Dorset County Hospital


We are always delighted to hear from people who have some free time to help us on the trolley or in our Shop. If you or a loved one has been cared for at Dorset County Hospital it is a good way of giving something back. Our volunteers are all ages; we have students who help at weekends and during school holidays. If you are 16 or over it is a good way to get some work experience. We also have students who are doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

We have a mixture of people who are recently retired, who are recovering from an illness, young mums, shift workers, people who have lost a partner and people who are new to the area. It is a great way to get to know people and give something back to the community at the same time.
