The Trust places great value on the contribution made by volunteers. When you consider the range of work done by over 120 dedicated people who give up their time to complement the role of paid staff and enhance the patient experience, you cannot help but admire their commitment.


Volunteers contributions range from making toast for the patient who has just recovered from an operation to fundraising on the ‘Friends Association’. This service has gained an excellent reputation locally and across Northern Ireland, hence the increasing number of potential volunteers who are constantly coming forward to offer their services. 



Who volunteers?

Western Trust volunteers come from all walks of life, from different backgrounds, ages and locations. All choose to volunteer for different reasons but each and every one is valued for the contribution they play in helping our wards, services and patients' care.
