Accelerating the impact of volunteering in health and care

Volunteers could play a much bigger role across health and care. Helpforce is a charity that exists to make this happen.

We help health and care organisations to accelerate the growth and impact of volunteering. This means frontline staff are happier, patients recover more quickly and people get the support they need to keep them well in their community.

How can we help you today?

Volunteers helping 1 million people

Our health and care services are under strain. Helpforce’s Back to Health campaign is boosting volunteers’ role in changing this.

We are partnering with 100s of health and care organisations and, together, we will help 1 million people. People who are worried they have been forgotten on a waiting list, who have no-one next to them while they are in hospital, or who just need extra help at home to get back on their feet.
