I may make a living by what I get, but I make a life by what I give . . .

Why volunteer?

Volunteering can be a good way of getting an idea of what it’s like to work in the health and social care sector.

There are benefits for you as well as for the Trust and its patients.

There are a number of volunteering positions at Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust. If you would like to volunteer for Valley Hospital Charity then you will still need to go through the Trusts volunteer recruitment process. To start this process please visit the Trust website.
