Volunteers

Volunteers are at the core of the project working with us to create a shared history of the NHS. 

Our volunteers bring a wide variety of life-skills and experiences that enlarge our core project team and enrich the range and depth of stories we are collecting. Volunteers gain professional oral history skills and act as the interface of the project meeting the interviewees to record their NHS stories. Our volunteers report a greater sense of wellbeing, belonging and feeling valued through these connections. 

Find out more about our volunteer programme below.

Please note the project is no longer recruiting volunteers to record oral histories. Please get in touch if you are interested in having a chat about other voluntary opportunities we may have.
