Volunteer with the NRH

The NRH recognises our Volunteers as a most valuable resource. Patient feedback highlights the benefits gained by patients through engagement with our volunteers.

Volunteers help our staff to coordinate and facilitate patient events, social outings and a wide range of recreational activities.

A comprehensive induction programme is provided for essential orientation and training for our volunteers.  Garda Vetting is required for all volunteer roles at the NRH.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, some of our traditional volunteering roles at the NRH have been temporarily suspended.  Roles currently include:

– Assistive Technology Assistants

– Recreational Therapy Volunteers

– Music Therapy Volunteers

– Occupational Therapy Support Volunteers

– Gardening Volunteers

– NRH Championship Volunteers (Sports and Marshalling)

– Other roles will come on-stream in the coming months
