Join in

Our work has been developed by both funded staff and exceptionally committed volunteers, interns and elective students. Here are some ways to get involved with CSH and our work. 

Volunteer, Intern and Elective Student Placements

Volunteering, internships, and student elective placements are three exciting ways for individuals to contribute to and develop our work. The descriptions and specifications for each experience is detailed below. Our upcoming intakes are:

  • 31 August 2021
  • 28 March 2022
  • 18 April 2022 

To apply, please email a short note with your background, specific project interests and skills, and dates that you are available to.


Volunteers have joined from around the world, some for a few months and others for several years. Some have volunteered alongside a regular job, or in retirement. If you would like to help our work, we ask for a minimum commitment of 8 hours per week for 6 months or a 4 days per week for a period of 4 weeks.  

We have unique opportunities for volunteers: 

Internships and Electives

Students and recent graduates are invited to learn about sustainability and healthcare as interns or elective students.  These experiences are full-time for a period of 4-8 weeks, which allows for intensive and focused work enhancing the impact of our sustainability programmes or the opportunity to engage on multiple programmes.

Partner with us

We collaborate with a variety of organisations at the intersection of health and sustainability, as well as with organisations inside the health system seeking to improve their sustainability. We look forward to increasing our partnerships, if you believe we could work with yours, please send us a proposal.

Join a network

The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare hosts and supports specialty networks in order to facilitate collaboration among communities of like-minded individuals working on sustainability issues in their clinical specialization or area of interest. Learn about upcoming events and resources, ask questions, and share ideas for sustainable healthcare in your field.

Keep in touch

Our monthly e-newsletter will keep you informed about sustainable healthcare and CSH news. Additionally, we have a newsletter dedicated to the NHS Forest.


Our work is funded through donations and project-specific funding. Please consider making a donation to assist our small team in their efforts to create a more sustainable healthcare system. Learn more, here
