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. This includes everything from supporting the care of patients and families at the hospice and in the community, to working in our charity shops, to helping our fundraising team generate the money we need to operate.
We’ve always recognised the importance of our volunteers, and in 2016 were given the prestigious Investing in Volunteers award. Prospect Hospice is one of only five hospices in England to have achieved this (find out more in our News section below). Our annual volunteer conferences provide a space to acknowledge the value of our volunteers, hear their voices and examine how we can better support them.
In this section you can find out about volunteering opportunities and how to apply for them, as well as reading some volunteer profiles, which describe what volunteering feels like for some of the people who already give us their time.

I've known some patients that have been cared for by Prospect Hospice, and I know that the hospice is very highly thought of. I wanted to do something worthwhile with my time so I'm here volunteering in the Heart of the Hospice as a cafe volunteer.
