We want you to be a part of King’s by getting involved. Tell us what you think of the care and services we provide and contribute your skills to help us improve how we manage the Trust and shape our future.
There are many ways you can do this, such as raising funds or becoming a volunteer and helping our patients while you learn and use valuable skills.
If you want to have a say in how we are governed and to find out about the public health issues that affect King’s and our community, become a Trust Member.
Or perhaps you would like to get more involved with how we run the hospital and the local issues that affect the Trust by taking part in our groups and events or consultation projects.
We have a range of projects you can get involved in, from ongoing consultations and committees to one-off focus groups that advise our service improvement projects. You can take part even if you have only limited time or simply want to share your experiences at King's with us.
We are keen to involve as many people as possible in the work of the Trust, including patients, members of the local community and our Foundation Trust Members.
Working with you
Here are some of the ways in which people are already involved and playing their part.
- Involving young people

- Helping to train staff
- Our Members are helping to train King’s College London healthcare students by sharing their patient stories and experiences.
- Accessibility at Denmark Hill
- Foundation Trust Members played a leading role in the successful campaign to speed up work to improve disabled access at Denmark Hill railway station.
