Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a volunteer for the UK Sepsis Trust.

Volunteers are the charity’s voices in communities and are essential in our mission to raise awareness of sepsis and end preventable death and life-changing injury from the condition.

Raising Awareness

Community awareness and education are the keys to improving outcomes from sepsis and our volunteers are vital to its success. We cannot do it with you.

You will be fully trained and supported throughout your volunteer journey by the volunteer lead who will provide opportunities in your area. Such opportunities might include delivering a community talk, representing the charity to receive a cheque or helping to host a stand at an event. You may also have opportunities of your own at a local school or hospital which we will be happy to support you with.

Our volunteering programme is designed to be flexible and fit around people’s busy schedules, enabling them to focus on what they’re most interested in.

We’re committed to providing inclusive and diverse volunteering opportunities, and always encourage our volunteers to try their own ideas within the roles we offer below.

Speaker Volunteer

Our speaker volunteers aim to educate and protect their communities by communicating our life-saving messaging and inspiring people to take action locally in support of our awareness mission.

By sharing their personal stories of sepsis with people in settings such as schools, universities, hospitals, business conferences, faith group meetings and sports club sessions, audiences are able to emotionally connect to the cause and the importance of knowing the signs to look out for.

Our volunteers sometimes even get the opportunity to speak about their experiences of sepsis on television, radio and podcasts.

Fundraising events volunteer

Can you help us at some of the UK’s biggest fundraising events to raise life-saving awareness of sepsis – the condition that kills more than breast, bowel and prostate cancers in the UK every year?

We need help from enthusiastic volunteers to make sure our participants have the best possible experience at events including The Great North Run, London Marathon, Cardiff Half, Brighton Marathon and the London Landmarks Half Marathon.

These events are real highlights in our calendar and we need your help to support and encourage our fantastic fundraisers.

Our presence at these events is also vital in boosting the profile of our charity and helping others hear about our work.

It’s not just about the big events though, we also need people to represent the charity at smaller community events to help out and thank all our wonderful supporters.
