Youth Volunteering

The Leeds Teaching Hospitals Youth Volunteering Programme aims to increase the opportunities offered to young people aged 16-25 to volunteer within the NHS.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering, unfortunately we don’t currently have any opportunities available but please keep checking back for updates as we hope to be able to welcome applications from young people again as soon as possible.

If you have a specific query you can still contact our Youth Volunteering Manager Tif – tifaine.carter@nhs.net

Funding

LTHT received a grant from the Pears Foundation as part of the national #iwill Youth Social Action Campaign; the grant is being used to support the Youth Volunteering Project at the Trust.

The #iwill Fund is made possible thanks to £40 million joint investment from The National Lottery Community Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to support young people to access high quality social action opportunities; the Pears Foundation is acting as a match funder and awarding grants on behalf of the #iwill Fund.

The #iwill Fund brings together a group of organisations who all contribute funding to embed meaningful social action into the lives of young people. Social action involves activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering, all of which enable young people to make a positive difference in their communities as well as develop their own skills and knowledge. The #iwill Fund supports the aims of the #iwill campaign - to make involvement in social action a part of life for young people, by recognising the benefit for both young people and their communities.
