Our volunteers give over 35,000 hours of their time to Bury Hospice each year.

At Bury Hospice we aim to provide the best possible support and care to patients living with life limiting illnesses and their families. Our ability to undertake this work and to develop our services is only made possible through the generosity and dedication of our volunteers. We are supported by a committed and enthusiastic workforce of over 400 volunteers, who each play a fundamental role in the day-to-day running of the Hospice.

A range of opportunities

Volunteering is embedded into every aspect of Hospice life and we are thrilled to be able to offer such a range of opportunities for volunteers to become involved with; from roles supporting clinical and bereavement services, to fundraising, domestic, and administration or retail roles.

Induction & Training

Volunteers come to us from diverse backgrounds, with a variety of experiences and skills, and each with their own individual reason for choosing the Hospice as their preferred place to volunteer. We endeavour to utilise the skills of all of our volunteers in the best way possible so that they are each able to make the maximum contribution to the Hospice. As an organisation we view volunteering as a two-way relationship and are passionate about encouraging personal development, and ensuring that volunteers get the most out of their experience with us. We offer a comprehensive induction and training programme for newly recruited volunteers, and refresher training and ongoing support/supervision for established volunteers, as well as celebratory events to showcase appreciation for volunteers.

Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic the volunteer recruitment process is likely to be slower than usual and we are not currently able to actively recruit into all areas (this is especially the case for patient-facing roles).
