How was your experience of volunteering during the pandemic?

NHS Health Education England (HEE) is sponsoring a project to capture the experiences of NHS employees who also volunteer in any setting (within the NHS, independent and voluntary sector). This is an opportunity to highlight volunteering experience, share stories, and to celebrate and champion the work of individuals.

The main purpose of the study is to shed light on the experiences of volunteers, to showcase the different experiences of volunteers and to highlight examples of good practice. Please find attached the participant information sheet. In essence, you would be asked to participate in an online interview or telephone call for no longer than 45 minutes.

Regardless of the size or duration of your volunteering, the researchers would be delighted to hear from you. If you are willing to take part, please contact the research team Dr Cheryl Brook and Mrs Cherry Hood from the University of Portsmouth, cheryl.brook@port.ac.uk and cherry.hood@port.ac.uk. Should you have any questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact the research team.
