"I would recommend everyone to join the Helpforce Network. The amount of knowledge that has been shared has made a real difference to my work and inspired me to think innovatively when it comes to supporting our patients, volunteers, and staff."

Ruth Paterson

Voluntary Services Lead, West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust

"For me being part of Helpforce has been great. We’re able to share training tips, documentation and useful insights. I would recommend this network to all staff connecting with volunteers."
