Volunteers play a vital part in providing a greater quality of life to the Chelsea Pensioners who live at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. From escorting them to hospital appointments, to giving painting or singing lessons, volunteers play an essential role in our community. Currently we already have a large number of volunteers who we value greatly, and new volunteers who we are looking to place in our volunteering roles in the future. Therefore, I regret that at present we cannot accept any further offers of help. Thank you for the interest you have shown in volunteering at the Royal Hospital and please do keep an eye on this web site as any future volunteering opportunities will be advertised here.
