Minibus Assistants

St. Richard’s Hospice are looking for people to make a difference to the lives of others every day.

We are currently recruiting volunteers to join us as Minibus Assistants to accompany the minibus drivers to bring patients in for Day Hospice.

Patients come to Day Hospice to have some time for themselves and to provide a break for their carers. They will receive individual care from our specialist professional team of doctors, nurses, therapists, chaplains and trained volunteers.

The volunteer will assist the patients on, off the minibus, help them during the journey, if required, and assist them to and from the Hospice building. Our minibuses are specially adapted to take wheelchairs and therefore volunteers will be required to clamp the wheelchairs onto the minibuses. Full training will be provided.

This role is enjoyable but can sometimes be challenging.

Good communication skills including listening skills and being physically fit are essential for this role.
