Our core purpose is to work with people and lead communities in improving their mental and physical health and wellbeing for a better life; through delivering excellent and responsive prevention, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment and care.
Volunteering is beneficial to everyone involved: the volunteer, the healthcare organisation and service users.
Our Trust offers a wide range of volunteering opportunities across all services. The aim of the volunteer programme is to offer opportunities within the Trust that will help develop both the volunteers and our services. The programme also seeks to create opportunities outside of the Trust to give all those involved a sense of value, confidence, self-esteem and recognition.
Benefits for the volunteer include an opportunity:
We are fully committed to equality and diversity, and will engage with anyone who wants to volunteer.
Anyone with a genuine interest in the work of Derbyshire Healthcare will be considered (our work primarily covers mental health, eating disorders, substance misuse, learning disabilities and children’s services) We would particularly encourage people who are receiving or have received services from the Trust or carers of people receiving services to become volunteers.
