Volunteering & work experience

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust recognises its role as a major local employer and encourages the opportunity of providing appropriate work experience, employability and voluntary service placements.

Volunteering at CHFT


We have been blown away by the amount of offers we have had from people in our communities to volunteer here at CHFT.

Due to Covid-19 we've had to temporarily stand down our Voluntary service.

If you are interested in getting involved in the future , feel free to get in touch and we'll add you to our list so we can contact you when we are able to re-start the service. 

Please email or call 01484 355648.


Work Experience

Work experience is not taking place at the moment as patient and staff safety is our priority and visitors to the Trust is limited.  This will be reassessed as situation with Covid changes and we will update the information on here once we are in a position again to offer work placements, in September 2021.

Thank you for your patience.
