Standing side by side with our NHS

Since 1948, Royal Voluntary Service has proudly stood side by side with the NHS. We have provided vital support to vulnerable people on hospital wards and in the community and when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, this was no different. Royal Voluntary Service was called upon to recruit a new army of volunteers to deliver vital support to vulnerable people in England to remain safe and well at home – the NHS Volunteer Responders.

In nearly 200 hospitals across Britain, Royal Voluntary Service run welcoming cafés and shops that provide much needed refreshments, a safe space and friendly face for hardworking hospital staff. Your donation will show hospital workers across Britain appreciation for all that they’ve done for us, and allow us to continue to provide our vital services during this time of great need.
