Practical skills helping to keep the place ship-shape
Maintenance and upkeep of our caring environment is a key role at the hospice; at our main site in Barnstaple, in our shops and at our outreach centre in Holsworthy.
We always try to create a warm, welcoming and comforting atmosphere for patients and families who access our services.
Our team of volunteers are crucial in offering their skills and experience to keep our buildings looking their best. Whether it's painting a room to make it nice and fresh, or putting up shelves in an office space, it all helps.
Maintenance volunteers always work under the supervision and direction of our permanent maintenance team, so this is a great chance to use your skills and experience to help them keep the hospice in tip-top condition for the benefit of our patients and their families.
