Welcome to the website of the Friends of York Hospitals
We are a registered Charity, founded in 1953 and rooted in the local community.
Our charity has two main roles:
We provide hospital volunteers who help the patients and support the staff at York Hospital.
We raise money for the hospital to buy equipment and services that cannot be funded centrally.
Are you interested in volunteering with us?
