Trust welcomes 25 new volunteers

10 Feb 17

The Trust is pleased to welcome 25 new volunteers who will be supporting staff at our Lime Trees, York and Roseberry Park Hospital, Middlesbrough sites.

Volunteers support the Trust in a number of ways from helping in office / administrative functions, to engaging with patients through a wide variety of meaningful activities.

The support skills and experience volunteers bring play an important role in helping Trust staff to deliver a high quality service. However volunteering can also be hugely beneficial for volunteers also providing valuable experience for career development, access to potential training and development, as well as developing friendships.

The new members of our Trust volunteer family will be engaging with patients and helping to run a variety of activities on the ward at Roseberry Park Hospital, Middlesbrough and at Lime Trees, York they will be supporting our community child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) team, helping set up groups and meeting and greeting service users and their families and carers.

Commenting on the new volunteers, voluntary services manager, Lisa Cole said: "Volunteers can really help improve our patients experiences when they are using our services. We welcome our new volunteers and hope they have positive experience while they are with us."
