Volunteering at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Throughout the Royal Hospital; volunteers play a vital part in providing a greater quality of life to the Chelsea Pensioners, from befriending Pensioners, helping with activities, assisting with admin work, escorting Pensioners to hospital appointments, and more. Volunteers not only dedicate their time and energy, but also valuable skills and knowledge, and we would not be able to do all we do here without them.

Current volunteering opportunities:

Unfortunately we do not currently have any volunteering opportunities, and due to the popularity of our programme we also have a large waiting list.

On a day when the Chelsea Pensioners would traditionally be on parade with over 1,000 service men and women in Salisbury to celebrate Armed Forces Day, this year has seen a very different celebration of this important event.
