We need your help

Our volunteers are vital to making sure we provide the best possible care for our patients. 

Volunteers support our staff, enabling them to focus on the tasks they are qualified to do. We know time is precious and our aim is to make our patients’ time as fulfilling as possible.  

Volunteers bring their own skills and experience that enrich our services. Some are looking for opportunities to gain new skills, experience for employment or for new social contacts. We have a variety of opportunities to offer. 

Whatever part of the hospice family you would like to be part of, we only ask for a commitment to suit us both and the enthusiasm to make a difference. We offer ongoing support and training so our volunteers are fully engaged and feel valued.  

We have various volunteer roles availble. You can find out more via the link below.

I get a great sense of pride knowing I am helping and giving my time for such a wonderful cause.
