Why volunteer?

Doing good does you good! Helping others increases your serotonin levels, making you feel happy and positive.

Volunteering can be a fun, positive and interesting experience where you can learn new skills and make new contacts, and feel part of a team. We offer ongoing support to help you get the most out of your volunteering experience with us. People also like to volunteer to share their skills and expertise to the benefit of the wider patient community. 

Where can I volunteer?

You can volunteer from the comfort of your own home, in your local area, online, at events across the UK, or even at The Somerville Foundation office in Ipswich. It is up to you.
