Mark Lever

Chief Executive

It was seeing the power of volunteering first hand that motivated me to move from the world of finance to the charity sector nearly 25 years ago – a move I have never regretted. I am now incredibly proud to be working with such a talented team who are all committed to maximising the impact of volunteering on the health and well being of local communities.

Maeve Hully

Director of Volunteering

As a trained nurse I understand the genuine value volunteers can bring to patients families and healthcare. As someone who has volunteered in an NHS hospital I know how truly rewarding the experience of volunteering can be. We have already had great commitment from health boards in the three countries and I am looking forward to developing them.

My personal driver is social change and Helpforce is a fantastic opportunity to help communities as well as support our brilliant NHS. Based on my own volunteering experience, the magic of helping other people is a win-win for all involved and should play a role in all of our lives.

Every day I am humbled by the efforts of people who use their skills, time and compassion to help others. Volunteer managers across the NHS are creating opportunities for their volunteers to make a real difference to patients and staff and it is a privilege to work alongside inspirational healthcare professionals towards our shared vision of volunteer support for every patient.
