Meet our volunteers

We're so grateful to all our amazing volunteers!

Here are some of our fabulous volunteers talking about their experience of volunteering with CCS. 



Carol Rhodes photo"Volunteering gives you great insight into how different we all are and develops many life skills such as listening, it’s very rewarding and you are likely to learn a lot about yourself along the way".

Laura Quayle

“I am proud to be a volunteer with CCS NHS Trust as a Bedfordshire Breastfeeding Buddy. As a mum of 4 myself, I know first-hand just how vital peer support can be and am so pleased to be able to give back to my community by doing something that I feel passionately about, helping mothers and their breastfeeding journeys." 

Laura, Bedfordshire Breastfeeding Buddies Volunteer



Bree Herbert

“I love being a volunteer as I get to support families with real life enquiries, I also get to learn different parenting skills from others. This role also gives me training support where needed and opportunities to be on a panel as a service user for interviewing, allowing our voice to be heard."

Bree, Just One Norfolk Online Community Ambassador



Gosia Kolka“Volunteering brings in meaningful contribution to the future generations' health and wellbeing."

Gosia, Bedfordshire Breastfeeding Buddies Volunteer



“I had been volunteering for CCS for just over 8 years until Covid made it unsafe to do so. Working on reception, I met people of all nationalities and from all walks of life and found it interesting and enjoyable. It was also very rewarding being able to help patients, visitors and staff, and sometimes just a friendly smile or a few words of reassurance was all that was needed. During the pandemic my manager and other members of staff have been good enough to keep in touch, updating me on any news and kindly offering any help should I need it. It made me feel as though they were part of my extended family. I also received emails from the Volunteer Department and the Chief Nurse which were much appreciated and I felt fully supported by the Trust. If anyone is considering becoming a volunteer, I would highly recommend it!”

Sue, Reception Volunteer at Princess of Wales Hospital, Ely
