Supporting you as a volunteer
We want to make sure that all of our volunteers feel supported in their volunteer role at the hospice.
As part of your induction you will learn about the hospice and all that we do, and the expectations of your role. You will also need to attend Non-Clinical Statutory Training which covers all the basics for you to be safe and happy in your role. This is a requirement for all staff and volunteers. We also have a 'Meet the Hospice' session where you can hear from various staff about the hospice, helping to give you a well rounded idea of what everyone does.
You will be welcomed into the fold gradually, with the opportunity to understand how the whole charity operates.
We have annual volunteer social events, which give the hospice team the opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone and also give you the opportunity to socialise with other volunteers.
In our 'Volunteer Consultative Forum' each department is represented by a volunteer from their team. These volunteers play a key role in contributing towards organisational development, feeding back ideas and thoughts, and helping to disseminate information to their teams.
