How can I help?

In 2019 the Hospice was awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work in their communities. This huge honour is testament to the passion, skills and time which our volunteers (aged 14-92!) give us across 70 very varied roles.

Our team of volunteers is integral to making #YourPreciousLife truth for all who come into contact with The Hospice of St Francis, providing a place to belong. They are a hand in the darkness, and have become people to rely upon; helping to support fundraising, providing a warm embrace, highlighting our work in the community and keeping everything running smoothly. Our volunteers ensure that the community knows 'every life is precious.'
