At Prospect Hospice, we are proud of the remarkable contribution made by our volunteers, which is absolutely vital to our work.
There are many ways in which volunteers can get involved, sharing their skills and experience to help us deliver high quality end-of-life services. We have volunteers in over 50 different roles that vary from supporting the care of patients and families at the hospice and in the community, helping in our charity shops and driving patients, to helping our fundraising team generate the money we need to operate and tending to our gardens.
We welcome volunteers from the age of 14 in our shops, and 17 in most other roles, meaning we have opportunities for all who wish to be involved.
We’ve always recognised the importance of our volunteers and in 2016 were given the prestigious Investing in Volunteers award. Prospect Hospice was one of only five hospices in England to have achieved this. In 2020 we were reaccredited with the award, recognising that Prospect Hospice continues to demonstrate a commitment to providing an excellent volunteer experience.
In this section you can find out about our current volunteer opportunities and how to apply for them, as well as what you can expect from us. Additionally, you can read the volunteer profiles, which describe what volunteering feels like for some of the people who already give us their time.
