Volunteer information

Volunteers may be used in a variety of ways in SCAS, but the following are the most frequent volunteering opportunities available.  

  • Community First Responders (CFRs) – individuals who volunteer to provide a limited emergency response in their communities helping us to respond to patients more quickly than we may be able to otherwise. 
  • Volunteer Car Drivers (VCDs) – supporting the transport of mobile patients to and from hospital appointments. 
  • SCAS Charity Volunteers – individuals who volunteer to help with any aspect of the Charity’s activity.
  • Patient Panel – South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) is establishing a new Patient Panel designed to increase the involvements of patients, as well as their families and carers, in improving and shaping the future of our services.
