Friends of Chelsea Children’s Hospital School
Please help support the work of the Friends of Chelsea Children's Hospital School (Charity No 1060218).

Volunteer with FCCHS

The Friends of Chelsea Community Hospital School (Charity No 1060218) helps raise crucial funds to help develop and extend its vital work throughout the school year. We urgently need volunteers to assist with our fundraising/marketing activities and to help with our weekly, Tuesday (9.30 am - 2.00 pm), table-top sale. If you can spare 2-3 hours on a regular basis for 3 months it would make a big difference to the quality of life for chronically ill children in hospital.

Time commitment

Volunteering ‘shifts’ of 2-3 hours are available on Tuesday, for the table-top charity stall, from 9.30 am to 2.30 pm.
Other volunteering shifts of 2-3 hours are available to help support the school charity with its marketing and fundraising efforts (Monday - Friday 9.30am - 5 pm).

Volunteers are expected to commit to at least one regular shift of 2 - 3 hours per week for a period of not less than 3 months but a longer commitment is always most welcome.
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
The welfare of patients, staff and volunteers is the Trust’s top priority. The Trust has robust policies and processes in place for deploying volunteers safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes supplying PPE, practicing hand hygiene and social distancing, and providing appropriate training and pre-placement checks. If you have any concerns you may discuss these during the application process.
It is highly recommended that volunteers with face to face patient contact are vaccinated again COVID-19.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
