Get Involved


At OSCAR Bristol we recognise that volunteers play an important part in providing support to charities and we are therefore always looking for volunteers to work with our friendly team.

When looking for volunteers, we look for individuals that have the drive to improve the services for people affected by Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia throughout Bristol and the South West Region and those who value the work of OSCAR Bristol and want to further develop our services to provide support to anyone who is living with or affected by these two blood disorders.

Volunteering at OSCAR Bristol is flexible, and designed around your interests, skills and availability.  With new and varied voluntary roles, here are just some of the things you can do, including:

  • Raising awareness of OSCAR Bristol and what we offer
  • Supporting housebound people through befriending services
  • Developing, organising and running social and community events
  • Helping people to learn skills
  • Provide research and information
