Can I volunteer if I have been recently bereaved? If you have recently experienced a bereavement (whether this was somebody under the care of Trinity or not), and you wish to take on a patient-facing volunteer role at Trinity, we will ask you to wait for a minimum of 12 months before volunteering with us. Although this can seem like a long time to wait, feedback from volunteers suggests that this is an adequate adjustment time for those who have lost a loved one. We do have non patient-facing roles available in our shops and at our retail head office. You can find out more about these opportunities on our volunteer roles page.
