Volunteering with CCS

As a Trust, we recognise that volunteers make a unique and valuable contribution. They make a difference to the people who use our services, our communities and our staff. Volunteers enable us to deliver high-quality care that goes above and beyond the core services delivered. Volunteers do not replace existing paid workers’ roles but complement and support the work that staff do across the Trust. 

We welcome volunteers from all walks of life, who represent the diversity of our communities and bring with them a wide range of skills and experience.

The nature of volunteering makes it different from traditional employment. Our volunteering approach is based on flexibility; we know that a more informal and personal approach is essential to encourage volunteers from all areas of the community to give their time to our organisation.

We want CCS to be an outstanding place to volunteer – we know that volunteering is a choice and we hope that you choose us!

Your volunteering experience with CCS offers you:

  • The opportunity to make new friends, gain confidence and experience in an NHS environment
  • The opportunity to use existing skills you may have
  • The opportunity to complete the National Volunteer Certificate, awarded by Health Education England and SFJ Awards (click here to view a short animation).
  • A variety of roles to choose from
  • Full training and induction
  • Ongoing support
  • Any reasonable out of pocket expenses related to volunteering for us reimbursed
  • Recognition of the value you bring to our organisation
  • The opportunity to give back and influence our services
  • An enjoyable experience!

Training and checks for volunteer roles

Safeguarding is everybody’s business, and we take safeguarding very seriously as a Trust. Checks will be undertaken in accordance with the NHS mandatory pre-employment check standards as governed by NHS Employers.
