What if my skills don't fit your list of volunteer roles?
Unfortunately, we don't have roles to suit every person, but everyone has something to give so get in touch with the Voluntary Services Coordinator on 01442 869550 for a chat- the on-line list is not exhaustive. We would very much like to hear from anyone with professional and specialist skills to offer to the Hospice.
How much time do I need to give?
Each role has a different time commitment. Whether you can offer a regular commitment or are happy to be on 'stand-by' for a few hours a month, you can still make a real difference to the patients and families who use the Hospice or to the staff. We are very happy to discuss levels of commitment with you.
Will it cost me anything?
We can reimburse your expenses for travelling to your volunteering role at the Hospice or our shops. Any other out of pocket expenses are not usual and should be discussed and agreed in advance of expenditure.
Can I do my Duke of Edinburgh award with the Hospice?
Our shops offer places for students working towards their Duke of Edinburgh awards. We can support pupils aged 14 and above in 10 of our retail outfits. Please contact the Shop Manager directly, to see if they have any spaces for Duke of Edinburgh students.
