You can Help. You can help neighbours in need. Offering a small amount of your time will make a real difference to patients and their families and friends when they need it most. Our Hospice Community Volunteers are people who are able to give around two hours a week to offer practical help and social contact. No specific skills are required – just the ability to get on with people and a desire to help. St Richard’s Hospice will provide training and offer support whenever needed.
Assistance. As a Community Volunteer you will only be asked to provide help to someone who lives near to you and won’t be required to help with anything medical or related to personal hygiene. All we ask is that you are aged over 18 and live within the catchment area of St Richard’s Hospice.
If you are interested in this new volunteering role please complete the on-line application form or if you would like to know more contact Community Volunteers Scheme Co-ordinator on 01905 763963 or email: CommunityVolunteers@strichards.org.uk
During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.
The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
