Donate your time as a volunteer

Hundreds of volunteers hold responsible and highly valued positions throughout the Hospice, Living Well Centre and in our retail shops. From the in-patient ward and coffee shop, to the donated goods warehouse and at fundraising events, there are a huge variety of important and rewarding roles that our volunteers readily fill.

"Your gift of time and support is what enables us to continue delivering expert, compassionate end of life care to families, free of charge, right across our area of care".

Volunteers fulfil essential roles which provide support throughout the Hospice and Living Well Centre, in patient-facing roles, 'behind the scenes' and at fundraising events.
