Volunteer with us
Learn new skills, meet new people, and help support seriously ill children and their families
Why volunteer at GOSH
Volunteering with us is a fantastic way to use your skills and experience to support the incredible work of the hospital. While none of our volunteer roles are based directly inside the hospital, the charity provides vital support to patients, families, and staff.
You don't need specific skills, just enthusiasm to get involved. Every day is a chance for you to make a difference.

As a GOSH volunteer, you will:
- make a real difference to seriously ill children and their families
- enhance your existing skills and learn new skills
- meet and connect with like-minded volunteers
- have fun whilst making a positive impact
