What We Do

Hospital education provides children and young people with continuity, reassurance and normality and the ability to maintain and progress their learning.  The Friends work to support the school in developing an extended school year holiday programme of  arts and music for children in hospital, whilst helping to develop information technology systems and infrastructure to facilitate anytime, anywhere learning for those pupils/patients on the wards who are unable to access education.

If you would like to support the work of the Friends (FCCHS) please enter our monthly school lottery and/or use our GiveAsYouLive portal for all your online purchases.

Many thanks in advance for your consideration.

Volunteer

The School's Friends charity  (FCCHS) helps raise crucial funds for its vital work. We urgently need volunteers to assist with our regular fundraising activities. If you can spare a few hours each week it would make a big difference.

Duties (what you will be doing):

  • Supporting the Marketing and Communications Manager with fundraising projects and campaigns
  • Distributing leaflets/flyers to local businesses to raise awareness of the charity /school
  • Helping with marketing – making phone calls, sending emails, researching opportunities, social media posts
  • Some online office type administrative tasks

If you have particular skills and experience in business management, graphic design, social media or marketing then we can look at additional opportunities that utilise those skills.

Time commitment:

  • Volunteering ‘shifts’ are available on weekdays only, 9 am to 5 pm
  • Volunteers are expected to commit to at least one regular shift of 3 to 4 hours per week for a period of not less than six months  - a longer commitment is always welcome.

Location:

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, 369 Fulham Rd, London SW10 9NH

It is possible to perform much of this role online and remotely, although there could also be team meetings at the Chelsea Hospital School site (lockdown and coronavirus safety restrictions permitting)
