People volunteer for a variety of reasons:
- to give support to the local Community
- to meet new people, make new friends and be part of a team
- to learn new skills
Our volunteers are from a wide range of backgrounds and of various ages. They do, however, have one thing in common – they all want to ‘give something back’ and in doing so, each volunteer brings their own unique qualities and skills to the Hospice.
It is very important to us that our volunteers benefit from their volunteering, as well as the Hospice and our Community benefitting from them giving freely of their time. An induction is held for new volunteers and a range of ongoing training sessions are held for volunteers to enable them to enhance their skills and work effectively within the Hospice environment.
