The COVID-19 outbreak has hit hard and the past few months have been incredibly challenging for our nurses and staff. We had to press pause on face-to-face volunteering with our patients & families and those that support us in our offices and shops.
Following scientific advice and UK government guidance we've now been able to put measures in place in our shops, offices, and with our patients & families to begin to welcome our Queens-Award-winning volunteers back.

It may take a little longer than normal to hear from one of our team, but we'd love to have the chance to speak with you about the time you have to give and the skills you can offer to support our vital work.
Your voluntary support enables us to give our patients the choice to be cared for at home and keep them out of hospital in the heart of their family right until the end.
There are many rewards to volunteering from meeting new people through to enjoying the experience of giving your time knowing that you are making a difference. We rely on the goodwill of people like you as without your support we simply couldn’t care for so many patients.
Volunteering can also provide a gateway to employment and can be a really helpful way of developing new skills and confidence.
