Join our team of volunteer community ambassadors

Volunteer charity ambassadors

PLEASE NOTE:

Recruitment for new Community Ambassadors is currently on hold until 2022.
If you have any query please do get in touch via the email at the bottom of this page.
We do apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we look forward to hearing from you next year!

Our community ambassadors are a network of volunteers representing the charity and raising awareness of work of the hospital.

Whether it's minutes or months, hours or days; the time you give really does make a difference.

Please note this role does not involve any contact with our patients or volunteering in the hospital itself. Please contact the hospital’s Volunteering team if you are seeking a role within GOSH.

  • Giving inspiring talks on the charity and work of the hospital to a variety of community groups
  • Promoting, recruiting teams or volunteering at our events
