Our Volunteer Partners

  • Our Trust Chaplaincy also recruit volunteers of all faiths to comfort and encourage patients and their relatives during their stay in hospital.
  • The charity Agewell runs a shop, situated in the outpatients area of Sandwell Hospital. All proceeds will go towards helping older people in need. The shop sells a range of items including sandwiches, snacks, drinks, toiletries and newspapers.
    A trolley service is also run by Agewell and makes its rounds twice a day at Sandwell Hospital.
  • The League of Friends volunteers run shops, book sales and take trolleys around the wards at Sandwell Hospital and the Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre, which is based at City Hospital.
    For further information on the League of Friends at the Trust then please contact 0121 507 2865/5054 or ask at the shop in Main Reception at Sandwell Hospital.
  • We provide two levels of breastfeeding training designed for mums who have breastfed. This can be provided as part of a Peer Support project or as a stand-alone activity to increase breastfeeding awareness and support in a specific area. We are also able to deliver training to health professionals or other customer-facing staff, to increase their knowledge of how to support a breastfeeding mother.
