St. Richard’s Hospice are looking for people to make a difference to the lives of others every day.
The Hospice provides a Creative Therapy service to help individuals express their feelings and emotions through art and activities. The sessions can be varied and dependent upon what the patients would like to do. Recording treasured memories and creating memorabilia for families are just some of the things the patients can get involved with.
We are currently recruiting a Creative Therapy volunteer to lead and facilitate either a Living Well course or a monthly drop in session.
The Living Well course will take place once a week for a number of weeks whilst the drop in session will be held once a month and the activities undertaken will be of your choice e.g. painting, drawing, knitting etc.
This role is enjoyable and rewarding but can sometimes be challenging.
Leadership skills and good communication skills including listening skills as well as the ability to be sensitive to the varied needs of others are essential for this role.
