Hands Up for Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice

Whether it's minutes or months, days or decades, every moment matters

Volunteers are at the heart of Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice and play a vital role in everything we do. Without their time and generosity, we would not be able to provide our services to patients and their families.

We're always looking to welcome new faces to our amazing team. If you have some time to spare and would like to make a difference in your local community, we would love to hear from you. Click through the pages below to find out more. Why not get involved?

Why Volunteer?

People volunteer with us for many different reasons. Our volunteers tell us they joined to meet new friends or to gain skills and experience or because they have a personal connection to Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice. Whatever your motivation to volunteer, we want to hear from you!

Below are just some of the roles you could be involved in, and of course we will support you every step of the way, with suitable training and induction to your tasks.

Charity Shop

Retail

We need people interested in fashion, art, old coins, music records, antique and modern furniture, electricians for PAT testing, bric-a-brac treasure hunters, those with and without retail experience or even just a passion for recycling. All skills and knowledge make a difference in helping us raise funds to deliver our vital care.

Social Care

Social Care

Volunteers can be so valuable in contributing to the services our Hospice team provide. Our Social Care volunteers provide important support to our patients and their loved ones, including through bereavement.

Fundraising

Fundraising Events

Fundraising events help contribute to the £5 million we have to raise each year and it would not be possible without the army of volunteers who make it possible. Why not become a marshal at our next big event?

Support Roles

Support Roles

There are many roles that help support the daily running of our Hospice building and shops. We rely on volunteers to support us in different departments such as maintenance, gardening, reception and in the Bluebell café; where you will also assist in serving visitors drinks and meals.
