Volunteer charter

Every Willen Hospice team member has a part to play in ensuring the delivery of the Hospice vision to be the lasting and thriving provider of free care to all people affected by life limiting illness in our community.

The commitment, passion and effort of volunteers is essential to our future. In return, every volunteer should feel valued, supported and appreciated.

This Volunteer Charter outlines a mutually beneficial and fair relationship between volunteers and Willen Hospice, demonstrating our commitments and outlining our expectations of volunteers who support us.
