Volunteering at Willow Wood is more than just a job; it’s a calling to help others.

Why is volunteering Important?

Here at Willow Wood and within our retail operations, we currently have a ‘small army’ of over 500 volunteers, and there is always room for more! Support from our volunteers allows us to continue to provide vital care for our patients.

Where can you volunteer?

There isn’t a department that would function as efficiently as it does without our volunteers continued support. Whether you’re answering the phone or gardening we have lots of great opportunities if you are interested in a voluntary position, and some of them are listed below:

  • Day Hospice
  • Reception
  • Charity Shops
  • Hospice Gardens
  • Fundraising
  • Complementary Therapies
  • Admin Staff
  • Distribution Centre

The Benefits of volunteering

Not only is volunteering important to the Hospice, it is also highly beneficial for you.

By volunteering with us, you can learn new skills and develop your knowledge. You can meet new people, and benefit socially by working in a team. You can achieve satisfaction from giving something back to Willow Wood and the community.

We accept applications from groups such as Duke of Edinburgh and welcome Corporate Volunteering groups for day/s activities. For more information visit our corporate page.
