Volunteers

We provide a reactive service that aids people by offering trained volunteers to assist with practical tasks over a time limited period. Our team of Community Taskforce Volunteers are ready and willing to help!

Anyone can ask for help whether friend, neighbour, relative or any professional. We will consider any request within Edinburgh and if we can’t help we will point you in the direction of an organisation that may be able to help. We offer a prompt unique service at all times.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the past fifteen years

The Volunteer Hub at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital was created in September 2008 by Volunteer Edinburgh. At the invitation of the hospital’s management, we developed a service that used volunteering to bring meaning, purpose and joy to the lives of hundreds of in-patients and supported their recovery journeys. Hundreds of public volunteers were also engaged and shared their skills, time and compassion.
