Get Involved

There are many ways to support CGHP and contribute to improving health globally. Healthcare staff of all levels and disciplines volunteer their time and expertise to health partnerships, while our supporters and donors play a vital role in making the work possible. Whatever your role and area of interest, our established network of trusted health service providers, partners and professionals in the East of England and internationally gives us unique knowledge and insight that we offer to you.

We ensure that your contributions are safe, effective and ethical – not only for you, but for our partners and their patients. We can support you with advice, guidance and training, and help you apply for special leave and find funding for partnership activities, projects and visits.

As an individual you could:

  • Join a health partnership team in one of our established programmes.
  • Use a CGHP Grant to fund independent volunteering.
  • Volunteer in the CGHP office-based team to help us to administer and deliver our core work.
  • Donate, at any level, to help us continue and grow our services.

As an organisation you could:

  • [UK based] Facilitate volunteer healthcare placements in our highly successful programmes and actively support staff to engage with our activities.
  • [Overseas] Work with us to create or further develop a programme to improve the delivery of quality healthcare.

As a healthcare professional you could:

  • Join our active network of individuals interested in global health.
  • Contact us for advice and guidance on global healthcare volunteering opportunities.
  • Work with us on a voluntary basis in one or more of our established programmes, take on an ethical elective in a partnership we support, or use the CGHP Grant Scheme to fund independent international healthcare related voluntary work.

Participating in this elective has been truly enriching, and I cannot wait to return to Uganda armed with newfound knowledge and skills.
