Volunteering Is Fun And Rewarding

Volunteering with Sheffield Hospital Radio

All sorts of people get involved in many ways. Whether you are interested in patient visiting, technical, fundraising, producing content off air, helping out with administration, and, oh yes, the final link in the chain, presenting radio programmes, there's always something exciting to contribute to!

If you are interested in joining us, use our online contact form. Or you can email the Membership Officer at: giving some details about yourself, and why you're interested in joining the station. You can also write to us at the Royal Hallamshire hospital, c/o the Membership Officer. We'll then get back to you and arrange an informal meeting where you can meet some members and chat about the station. We're sorry, but we aren't able to take work experience students or placements.

So, you've met with us, you want to be part of the team, we want you to be part of the team, what happens next? Because we work in partnership with the Voluntary Services, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust your details will then be passed on for their volunteer vetting procedure. This includes a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (previously known as CRB) due to the nature of work that we undertake within hospitals and other parts of the NHS. If, for whatever reason you don't consent to a DBS check we won't be able to process your application to join.

Everybody is a volunteer and we understand that personal life can influence your volunteer commitments, but we do ask that everyone gets involved in at least four fundraising events a year. All our volunteers are unpaid but we don’t think that volunteering should leave you out of pocket so we take part in a scheme where travel expenses are reimbursed by the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The Membership Officer can give you details of how to make a claim. Direct access to the studios at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital is restricted since they can only be accessed via several flights of stairs.
