How much time can you give?
No matter how much time you have to give to volunteering at the Hospice, we would love to talk to you. If you have any specific skills that you feel could be of benefit then please do let us know.
A word from our Chief Executive
“Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers for everything they do to support the vital work of St Wilfrid’s Hospice. Since the Hospice opened in 1987 volunteers have been integral to our care since the very beginning.
Every day, our volunteers help us to go the extra mile to support patients and those who matter most to them, in so many varied and often imaginative ways! Fundamental to our care is ensuring every patient we support knows that we care about what matters most to them and that we will do our very best to help meet their needs. The volunteers in our shops do a great deal to support our customers and donors and the many people in our local community who gain a lot from visiting our shops regularly. There are many other ways that volunteers support our work, including fundraising in our community and supporting our education programmes.
We continually welcome new volunteers to our team, and attracting volunteers from our community and increasing our diversity will be a key aim for us in the coming year.”
