Prospect Hospice is the leading provider of education and training for end-of-life care in Swindon and north Wiltshire. Working closely with you, our colleagues within partner organisations, we want to ensure that the very best care is available to everyone facing the end of life. This is why we provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end of life care and support.
Whether shopping with us in person or online, or donating your pre-loved goods, we thank you for supporting us through our shops where you help to raise around £2million a year for Prospect Hospice.
We pride ourselves on being a great place to work and we're always looking for outstanding people to join our team at the hospice across all areas of the charity.
With Prospect Hospice needing the support of its local community to deliver our services, we decided that in 2018 we would proactively link up with more of our community partners to help and support more people through volunteering.
With great links in place already with the Volunteer Centre in Swindon, we have this year been able to help several people through the Building Bridges programme that offers people the opportunity to gain confidence and skills to move towards the world of work.
We have also successfully introduced four volunteers into our shop and distribution network via Swindon Borough Council’s Health and Social care programme and the momentum is really building in this area.
Barbara from our Distribution Centre (pictured above) said: “We have a number of roles for people to do, but we always offer a taster session first, so they can come along and try things before committing to a regular shift.”
