You can make a difference as a St Richard’s Hospice volunteer.

St Richard’s depends on volunteers in almost all of its work to fulfil its goal of providing free care to patients and support to their families.

We are looking for volunteers to join us wherever they are able to. We are flexible and happy for people to volunteer on a regular or occasional basis. We have many different volunteer roles reflecting volunteers’ individual skills, interests and availability.

You could be part of our team and join around 1,000 existing volunteers who help in many areas of the hospice and without whom we could not provide our care.

If you would like more general information about volunteering opportunities, please contact Kirstie Smith, Staff and Volunteer Recruitment Co-ordinator on 01905 763963 or emailing
