ECHO - Connecting the Children's Heart Community

Make a difference


Our volunteers are essential to everything we do – without them we simply can’t support the ECHO community.

Our volunteers give their time and contribute their experience and skills to benefit our work. They provide emotional and practical support in hospital, from home, in their local communities and in our office.

Our volunteers love working with us knowing they make a real difference to people’s lives.

There are many ways to volunteer your time and expertise, see below for a role that suits you. Alternatively please contact us to find out more or offer other suggestions, we’re always happy to talk and any time you can give will make a big impact.

We look forward to welcoming you to Team ECHO!
