That’s why we’re looking for enthusiastic engagement volunteers to help spread the word about the amazing work we do. 

Coronavirus update

Learn more

Our volunteer services are currently on hold due to following government guidelines around coronavirus.

However, we are still processing applications and having video catch ups so please continue to contact us with any enquires and application forms. It is the perfect time to get ready for volunteering so that when services resume, you can hit the ground running!

By volunteering for us, you can support us with your time as well as through donations. 

It also allows us to give something back - whether that’s the opportunity to learn new skills, gain experience in the charity sector or just join a warm and welcoming community and make some new friends.

Volunteering with us

We want your experience here at Moorfields Eye Charity to be engaging and fun. 

As an engagement volunteer, you will be assisting us in raising essential funds that directly benefit Moorfields Eye Hospital. 

It’s really been an exciting and humbling experience. There is nothing more rewarding than helping people recovering their sight, and volunteering with Moorfields Eye Charity is undoubtedly is a great opportunity to feel closer to the community and make a worthwhile contribution.

In return, we will do everything we can to help you get the most out of the experience: from giving you a full induction and training to just being there for a friendly chat, we’ll make sure you have everything you need.

As an engagement volunteer you might:

  • Cheer on our fabulous participants at events
  • Have a chat with visitors to the hospital about the charity
  • Tell people all about our fundraising events
  • Join in the festive fun at Christmas by selling raffle tickets
  • Distribute our leaflets around the hospital
  • Support our friendly fundraising team at our City Road offices by helping create fundraising packs to send out to our event participants

It’s 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 Institute of Ophthalmology.
