How to apply

Are you interested in becoming a volunteer at Poole Hospital?

If you have any questions please email

If you would like to apply to become a volunteer, please download and print the volunteer application form, complete it and return to

Once we have received your application form, we will contact you to arrange a short informal meeting, so that you can find out more about volunteering and we can find out more about you.

We will ask you to complete a health questionnaire and a DBS form (if appropriate to the role) , and will take up two references from people who have known you over two years (not a member of your family). This paperwork can take around four-eight weeks to complete.

Once all the paperwork is completed, new volunteers are invited to come in for an all-day induction and to agree start dates.
