RHB is looking for new, motivated volunteers to fill a variety of roles. These include:
Presenters, Ward Liaisons, Request Collectors, Fundraisers and individuals who know about
Marketing to help raise the awareness of the good work RHB does. If you are interested in any of these roles click the above to find out more. Please note we can’t take on work experience or anyone aged under 16 because of insurance restrictions and the length of time it takes to train individuals.
We are on the look out for potential presenters to fill daytime/evening hours to suit the volunteers time they can give.
There is only limited live shows during the day, a lot is pre recorded. It would be great
to fill the time with live presenters. Training will be at a time that is suitable to both new volunteers and trainers, the process can take 3-6 months on average, sometimes longer. Please keep this in mind before volunteering.
There are a number of tasks a presenter will normally undertake at RHB. The main one of course is presenting a show on air. Other rolls include:
i) Assisting with Requestline. This is our flagship show which is on air every evening.
It will require someone visiting the wards collecting requests from patients if the request collector
ii) Fundraising. RHB is a self funded charity and has to be able to raise funds for
equipment, maintenance, licensing, music and many other things. Most of the funds are collected by
donations but there will be times that it isn’t enough.
iii) Training. Assisting new volunteers with training. Please note that a presenter will not be able to
present their own show until full training is complete, they will however be able to present
Requestline as part of their training.
iv) When training is complete and a presenter has settled into their roll they may if they wish, join
the committee to assist in the day to day running of RHB. Most of the committee is decided on at our
AGM which is held in November but there is an opt on system that will allow anyone to join the
