Introducing Homerton Helpers 

Volunteers come from all sections of the community and have different motivations for getting involved. But they all have one thing in common – a commitment to give their time for free to improve patients’ experience of their hospital stay.

“Hospitals can be pretty daunting places for many of us. Our fantastic team of volunteers make such a difference. They provide a friendly face and extra support to ensure patients and visitors feel welcome and comfortable.” Tracey Fletcher, Chief Executive.
