Volunteering Opportunities

Meet new people, use your skills and gain experience!

Volunteering with Willen Hospice can be very rewarding, and with more shops opening soon, we need even more people to help us provide great service. 

In retail, your role could include operating a till, sorting incoming donations and helping customers.

We’re always looking for people to help out in our furniture shops and warehouse too. If you don’t mind a bit of heavy lifting and like to get stuck in, we would love to hear from you. There’s never a dull moment, and you’ll have plenty of transferable skills to add to your CV.

It’s up to you how much time you would like to offer. Shifts are flexible and we will always try to find a role that matches your availability – either regular hours weekly, monthly or ad hoc. Full training will be provided. No experience is necessary; just a willingness to help out.

Other volunteering positions include helping to keep our beautiful Hospice gardens neat, administrative support or patient care.

All our sites have procedures in place to make sure that they are COVID secure to ensure your safety. Find out how we handle data privacy for new applicants and current volunteers.
