NHS Youth Volunteering opportunities

Summer Volunteering Programme 2023
The aim of this four-week structured programme is to give young people aged 16-25 the opportunity to try some of the varied and fulfilling volunteering opportunities we have across NHS Lothian, whilst learning more about available routes into a career with the NHS and developing a better understanding about what it’s like to be in a healthcare environment.

This is a supported volunteering programme meaning applicants will be matched to experienced volunteers when on placement and to a Volunteer Manager on site for any queries, they will attend a training and info session at the beginning and end of the placement to help them to get the most out of the opportunity and will keep track of their progress through reflective workbooks.

Above all we hope our summer volunteers will have an enjoyable time whilst building their confidence and trying new things!

When is the programme running?
17 July – 11 August 2023
