Volunteering plays an important part in people’s lives and in society.

It can provide an invaluable opportunity to find out about the work of the NHS, as well as a range of other organisations. Whether it is a career you are interested in, spending some free time constructively or just ‘giving something back’, volunteering can prove very beneficial.

Volunteering can help individuals develop both personally and professionally. It can improve your confidence, self-esteem, and communication skills and, overall it can be very rewarding. 

One of the greatest benefits volunteers can bring to the NHS is the support and comfort you bring to our patients. We are incredibly grateful to all our volunteers here in Hywel Dda – thank you!

"Volunteers bring so much support to Hywel Dda University Health Board, staff and patients say they are a real asset" David Fretwell, Volunteer Manager
