Volunteer Innovation Programme (VIP)

In partnership with NHS England, Helpforce are working with NHS hospital Trusts to develop and share exciting and pioneering innovations in volunteering. The ambition of the ‘Volunteering Innovators Programme’ is to identify, enhance and spread the NHS’ leading innovations around impactful volunteer roles, which aim to support the front line of the NHS. 

As part of this project we are:

  • Measuring the impact of these interventions using empirical research and real life case studies
  • Working with Trusts to scale their volunteer offer and to share and spread these service models with other Trusts.

Join the conversation – within the forum you’ll find growing discussions about these leading innovations, where we and the Trusts involved in the projects will share their innovative services and their learning  around service inception, implementation and development.
