Back to Health - Unlocking the power of volunteering across health and care

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we saw the incredible support provided by millions of volunteers to help people shielding and to help with the national vaccination programme. We now need a similar scale of response to help the country recover faster and stronger from the pandemic. That’s why we are working tirelessly with our partners to bring the “Back to Health’ campaign to life, making sure volunteering can help get the UK back to health.

Insight & Impact

Our Insight & Impact (I&I) service helps you measure the difference your volunteers make to your NHS Trust.

"For our organisation, joining the Back to Health campaign as a partner is a complete no-brainer. Not only have we received great support from the Helpforce team to help us realise the great impact of volunteering on our patients and staff, but they have also given us a platform to voice our support for volunteering in health and care. I urge more health and care organisations to join this important campaign to maximise the huge power of volunteering.”
