Become a volunteer
Give your time to those that need it
Your commitment to Hospital de Sant Pau is necessary for the optimal development of daily activities, supported by your knowledge and experience as a volunteer.
For over 25 years, Hospital de Sant Pau has had a volunteer programme that aims to improve the quality of the patients' stay in hospital and that of their family members, by providing activities for companions and offering information and psycho-social support.
The volunteers’ work inside the Hospital comprehends different activities:
- Welcome and companion service
Through the volunteer programme, patients and their families receive information, support and guidance inside the Hospital. At the same time, volunteers accompany and entertain patients in hospitalisation units.
- Experience-sharing mission
Patients and family members tell their personal stories and share similar experiences.
- Group sessions
They hold specific group sessions where they share the experience with patients and family members.
- Complementary therapies
They offer supportive care to patients and their families.
They organise administrative and management tasks related to voluntary work. They plan the weekly programme of the volunteers’ activities and offer guidance to new volunteers.
They help raise funds and participate in specific campaigns and charity events.
- Games room
They look after the games room and run the paediatric toy-lending service.
