Become a Volunteer


Hospice at Home Volunteers provide practical, social and emotional support to both clients and their carers.

Our Volunteers offer a free service that provides strength and encouragement at a difficult time. We offer practical help where it is needed during the illness and beyond.

The support provided is flexible depending upon the individual client’s needs, but could include…

  • spending time with clients, enabling their carers to have two or three hours break
  • accompanying clients on trips to the shops or a favourite venue
  • offering companionship providing
  • information for further help

As volunteers we do not replace or take over the care or the support provided by the statutory services, nor do we provide direct personal nursing care or domestic services.

All our volunteers are fully trained and are CRB checked before visiting the patient.
