We are back! and looking for new members

Hospital radio in Sheffield is run by a dedicated group of volunteers from all walks of life and all ages. We need people with a passion for meeting people and wanting to help inject a smile into their day. If you have some spare time we would love to speak to you about joining. There are many more jobs to do than just radio presenting. We need ward visitors collecting requests, active fundraisers, social media managers, admin and technical staff as well as producers creating content for air. If this sounds interesting please see our volunteering page or apply now.

We Are A Voluntary Staffed Charity

Many people think that hospital radio is just about playing a few music tracks. Over 40% of inpatients in Sheffield hospitals aren't fortunate enough to have visits from family or friends. Our volunteers may be the only people they meet in hospital who isn't there to talk about their medical condition.

Our staff are all unpaid volunteers who give thousands of their hours for free to provide this service. Each year we need to raise around £4,000. Can you help us make this happen?

A friend by your bedside.
