Volunteers have always been an essential part of the hospice movement and we believe that volunteers are vital to the future of hospice care.

We know that everyone is unique and people volunteer for all kinds of different reasons. We aim to meet these different motivations and lifestyles with a range of opportunities that support the work of the hospice and harness the compassion within our community. We strive to develop our volunteer programme so it works for you as well as us.

Benefits of volunteering:

Our volunteers often tell us how rewarding their time with us is: you'll be part of a compassionate community and feel a real sense of pride for what you do. You'll meet new people, gain valuable experience, and develop your skillset.

We're passionate about helping people to reach their full potential, so we'll offer you relevant training and support.

Your volunteering will depend on what role you do. Have a look through our volunteer pages and see if there is something that you are interested in. If you are not sure what you would like to do just get in touch and we can discuss some of the possibilities.

We have roles across all areas of the hospice and at different times of the day or evening and volunteers are included in the department team that they support.

Voluntary Services Team:

The Voluntary Services department is open from Monday to Saturday, 8.30am – 5.30pm. They will support you in getting started in your role and with your ongoing volunteer journey to make sure you get the most from your time with us.
