Volunteers help in many ways, from staffing our hospital shops, supporting us at our events, distributing and gathering collection cans and helping in the office.
As an ECHC volunteer, you will receive an induction and all necessary training for your role. You will have a named contact in the organisation and be welcomed to volunteer events to meet the wider team and other volunteers. We will also regularly keep you up to date with any new volunteering opportunities, our activities and how your support is making a difference.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept volunteers under the age of 16 unless they are accompanied by a responsible adult and the volunteering role is age appropriate.
Please scroll down to find out about the current volunteering roles we have available.
Our fundraising team are vital to the work of ECHC, raising the funds that allow us to help babies, children and young people in hospital and beyond. We are keen to build and develop our team of volunteers who support our fundraising activities, creating a bank of trained volunteers to assist with a variety of tasks throughout the year.
We have a number of different volunteer roles available to support the team. Most roles involve providing support on an ad hoc basis (depending on the needs and activities of the fundraising team), with a minimum commitment across the year. Once accepted and trained for a role, the bank of volunteers will be contacted when tasks or events are planned and invited to help out.
Please see individual role profiles for more information or get in touch if you want to chat through the requirements of the role.
To apply for any of these roles, please click the button below to complete the Volunteer Application below, ensuring you give details of relevant skills or experience for the role(s) applied for in relation to the role profile.
Please note: the volunteering opportunities we offer are to support the work undertaken and services provided by our charity. Many of our opportunities are NOT based within the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People.
If you are looking to volunteer within the hospital (e.g. ward volunteers), please visit the NHS Lothian volunteering page for more information.
