Robin Ward Volunteer

COVID-19 volunteer update
Our recent call to arms for COVID-19 response volunteers has had an overwhelming reaction.

As we place a pause on receiving any new applications for now, we need to spend some important time going through the almost 2000 expressions of interest we have received, so please do bear with us.

On behalf of the Health Board, we would like to say a very big thank you if you have submitted a COVID-19 volunteer application. We really are extremely grateful.

If you still wish to volunteer, there are many other ways you can help. Our popular Robin volunteer scheme remains open all year round. Details can be found below.

Our hospital volunteer scheme is going from strength to strength across North Wales.

The Robin volunteers (nick-named the Robins because of their bright red polo shirts) are renowned for their friendly nature and willingness to help others. In fact they have proved such a hit that more are urgently needed in our local community hospital and in North Wales Acute Hospitals.

Robins are befrienders and prepare hot and cold drinks for patients; check water jugs; spend time in general conversation; provide a reading/writing service where appropriate; go on errands to the hospital shop; assist nursing staff with bed making; help with storage of supplies and tidying patients’ lockers amongst other duties. Some Robin’s can offer a signposting service too.
