UCWH Charity Volunteer

As a small charity, UCWH rely on the skills and time of supporters to ensure they can continue with their vital work. Some of the roles can be carried out from your home, others require you to go to their office in University Hospital. From bringing in a few collection boxes from shops near to where you live to photographing our events, scanning documents to promoting our lottery there are many ways you can help.
