NHS Volunteer Responders

Volunteer Responders is a national, flexible volunteering programme supporting healthcare in England.

The programme is in an exciting new phase and continues to evolve with healthcare services helping to shape what it provides in future. Our enthusiastic volunteers take on a range of roles to support people and NHS services.

Health and care teams can refer people for Check In and Chat and Check In and Chat Plus volunteer support. Members of the public can also request friendly phone calls from volunteers, either for themselves or someone they know (with that person’s permission).
