The Team

Why Volunteer With Us?

Find a Purpose

Giving your valuable time is a great way to give back to the community. Our volunteers get a sense of purpose and achievement from giving their time to fighting heart disease.


Volunteering for charity can be a pathway into a future career – some of our volunteers have gone on to become paid employees!

What’s involved in volunteering?

AHR is part of The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group and collectively, we have a variety of volunteer opportunities for you to get involved with.

You’ll work with motivated people, learn about AHR and get a unique insight into how a research institute operates, as well as the charity sector.

Volunteering for charity provides substantial benefits to our community and, and importantly it also provides significant benefits to you as a volunteer.
