Volunteer with us

Would you like to do something amazing?

We are extremely fortunate that a huge part of our team is made up of volunteers, many of whom have been with the hospice for a considerable amount of time.

Ranging in age from 14 up to 80 plus, each and every one of our volunteers adds a different dimension to our organisation, sharing experience, knowledge or skills. From our shops to patient care, IT and Admin support to gardening, there really is a volunteering opportunity for everyone.

If you are reading this as one of our volunteers, a huge thank you for everything you do. If you or someone you know might be interested or would like to find out more about our volunteering opportunities, without commitment, then please contact our Voluntary Services team on 01785 254645.

No experience is necessary, full training will be provided and we’d love to hear from you!

Join our award winning volunteers!

In 2010 our volunteer team were awarded the Queen’s Award for Volunteering – an achievement we are all extremely proud of.

Our volunteer roles are as varied as the individuals who support us and we are constantly reviewing how and where we might use volunteers differently, to enable the charity to benefit from the expertise and abilities on offer.

We also recognise that availability differs from person to person and where some prefer to volunteer in their chosen area on a regular basis, others are happy to undertake training in one or more areas and then help out as and when they are needed, to fit in with their own commitments. If you are reading this as one of our volunteers, a huge thank you for everything you do. If you or someone you know might be interested or would like to find out more about our volunteering opportunities, without commitment, then please contact our Voluntary Services team on 01785 254645.

Current volunteer opportunities

Whilst our volunteer opportunities at the hospice, remain somewhat restricted, we continue to welcome enquiries from prospective volunteers for all of the areas of the charity.  We can explain the current position and have a general chat about volunteering with you, in readiness for what we all hope will be a return to something closer to normality in the not too distant future.

We remain hopeful that our retail sites will be able to re-open from 12 April and will be seeking additional volunteers in our shops in and around Stafford and in North Staffordshire.   If you would like to know more about our retail opportunities or would like a chat about supporting other areas of the charity in the future, please don’t hesitate to contact the Voluntary Services Department on 01785 254645.  No experience is necessary, full training will be provided and we’d love to hear from you, without commitment!

Many thanks for your interest in volunteering.
