We have an amazing team of volunteers and couldn’t provide our support to patients and families without them

If you would like to join this band of local heroes then we would love to hear from you. We are flexible and happy for people to volunteer on a regular or occasional basis.

Volunteer opportunities are available at the hospice in Worcester, at our shops across the county, and at our warehouse in Leigh Sinton.

  • Are there any age limits?
  • We can take volunteers from age 14, dependent on the role. Volunteers who are involved in direct patient care must be over 18.  All those under 18 must have parental/guardian consent and will be supervised by adults who have undergone DBS checks.

  • Are any special skills or qualifications needed?
  • Sometimes, we need support from volunteers with practical skills such as complementary therapy, hairdressing, gardening, IT, catering, and drivers with their own car.

    But usually, all we ask is for volunteers to be empathetic, caring, enthusiastic, willing to learn, and with an interest in others.
  • Is training available?
  • The training provided is explained here: volunteer training.

  • How much time must I give?
  • The hospice is very flexible and so volunteers are able to give as they are able and according to the role they can fulfil. Some people give their time regularly each week and some are able to respond to occasional needs.

  • Is it possible to claim expenses?
  • There is a mileage allowance for those volunteers who use their own car on hospice business such as a volunteer driver or providing support in a patient’s home.
