Moorfields Eye Charity hub

Our volunteering programme is currently on hold until further notice. If you have any queries, please email us at We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding.

I wanted to give back to Moorfields as a way of saying thank you for the care I’ve received. My favourite part of volunteering is being able to assist patients either with information about the charity or directing them to other parts of the hospital. It’s a very worthy cause - funding eye care research is very important.

Andrew, one of our engagement volunteers

Please note that our volunteer programme currently takes place on site at Moorfields Eye Hospital, City Road, London EC1V 2PV. We do not have volunteering opportunities outside of this site, so please do only apply if you are able to easily commute into east London.

Become an event volunteer:

Come and help us on our fundraising event days such as Eye to Eye to help us make some noise and support our fabulous event participants. 

Its always a fun day and you’ll get to hang out with our friendly community! 

Volunteering is the perfect opportunity to get involved with the fantastic work we do, and to have a direct impact on how much we raise and the support we can offer to Moorfields Eye Hospital and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. 

Our charity engagement volunteers are so wonderful to give their time to really engage with patients, visitors and staff at Moorfields Eye Hospital. They bring so much to our charity and we love having them on board!
