NHS Sussex Community Ambassadors  

Do you want to make a difference? NHS Sussex are looking to recruit volunteers from a diverse range of backgrounds to support them to put people and communities at the heart of NHS Services.  

There are two types of volunteer roles available and you can give as much or as little time as you have available.

  • Engagement Community Ambassadors work alongside the Public Involvement team to reach in their local community, to connect with local people and gather views on health and care services in the area.  
  • Strategic Community Ambassadors work with clinicians and managers on specific programmes, projects and tasks to represent the public and act as a “critical friend”.

All volunteers have access to training and support and are reimbursed for reasonable expenses.  

NHS Sussex embraces diversity and equality and are committed to building a team of volunteers with a variety of backgrounds, skills and views.
