Current Volunteer Positions

We need volunteers in every area of Willow Wood. If you have time to spare and skills to share there's sure to be something to suit.


We have a number of different departments within the Hospice that have a large amount of administration, and without the help of volunteers it would be almost impossible.

Filing, auditing, using databases, making calls and so much more. Hours and days are flexible but will
generally be Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.

Are you looking to use or gain customer service skills, confidence and meet new people, in a friendly and exciting environment? This could be for you! We have a Café in The Pad in Stalybridge, where many customers are welcomed on a daily basis.
