Each year around 300 volunteers get involved with us in some way, this could include volunteering on a regular basis or one off helping at our events.

Volunteering is flexible around you, we know people have busy lives and giving just an hour, a couple of hours, or a day makes a big difference and we ensure you are supported and given all the information you need to volunteer.

I volunteer because I’m helping my community and I had great support from the hospice. I love it!
