Why volunteer for Prospect Hospice?

Volunteers make a huge contribution to the work of Prospect Hospice, and our 900-plus volunteers are part of the heart of our work.

These days everyone has a different reason for wanting to volunteer with us:

  • Making new friends.
  • Giving time and skills to your local community.
  • Learning new skills.
  • Boosting your CV.
  • Making a difference, to others and to you.

People choose to volunteer for so many reasons and they all have one thing in common - they want to support our work, our patients and our community. We aim to make sure that you feel well supported and valued, and that the time you give us helps us and helps you reach your personal goals.

We do everything we can to make your experience as rewarding and enjoyable as possible:

  • Full training is given.
  • Regular support is provided.
  • Hours are flexible.
  • You can claim out of pocket expenses.

Fourteen is the minimum age for volunteering with us, in our shops. If you're under 16, we'll need your parent or guardian’s permission. Our managers are happy to support young people starting out in the world of work, completing their Duke of Edinburgh Award, or boosting their CV and personal statement.

If you have the skills, experience or time to join Prospect Hospice volunteers, please take a look at our current opportunities.
