Whatever your working or life experience, by volunteering for our hospice, you can make a difference to the lives of the patients we look after, their loved ones, and their professional carers.
Volunteers help us provide all of the services that make hospice care truly special.
Every year the hospice offers care and support through a wide range of services to local people with terminal illnesses - that might be a friend, neighbour or a member of your family.
What could you do?
We have various volunteer roles available; if you have a skill and a desire to make a difference - we can find a way for you to help. It doesn’t matter how much time you have to give, whether it’s helping at one of our fundraising events a couple of times a year, supporting us in one of our shops at a weekend, volunteering as part of the telephone bereavement service in the evening or helping with the upkeep of our beautiful gardens, we can be flexible to meet your availability and interests. There's no minimum commitment.
Many people use volunteering as a route into paid employment, and as well as giving you training specific to your role, you could have access to additional opportunities across the hospice as they become available to develop more skills and confidence.
