The Hospice was started by volunteers and they remain integral to us today by sharing their interests, skills and talents. They make a real difference in their local community. Volunteering can be a very rewarding experience and is a great way to meet new people. Many of our volunteers say they get so much more out of volunteering than they ever expected.
Our volunteers give invaluable support in every area of our work . Whatever your age, background, motivation or experience, there is likely to be a volunteer role at our hospice suited to you. Please see our ‘be inspired’ and ‘ role description’ sections below for further information.
There are many roles you can help with from administration, reception, housekeeping, catering to supporting our client users or fundraising and counting up cash. We are always looking for help and are more than happy to assist you in finding an area you will enjoy volunteering in. You can give as little or as much time as will fit into your life. You can be patient focused or in the back room staff. See our role descriptions below.
Once we receive the completed paperwork we will aim to invite you in for an informal interview within four weeks of receipt. On this site you will find the specific roles we are in urgent need for help with but we always need volunteers in every area of the hospice. There really is something for everyone so don’t be shy come and join our happy team and really make a difference to your local community.
