Volunteering is about supporting the needs of the children and their families you meet each week – whether that is one child you engage with for a long period of time, many for shorter visits or escorting families to their appointments. The number of patients and families you engage with will vary from week to week and there are no set targets. However, it is important as an organisation that we can demonstrate the impact our volunteers are having and to demonstrate the need for the services CIH provide nationwide.
Each hospital site will have a binder or other safe set space with a sheet for each volunteer to sign-in and fill in the following information per shift:
Each Team Leader will return the sign-in sheets on a monthly basis and a new one will be sent out.
