Volunteering at LOROS

Volunteers are an important part of daily life at the Hospice. We rely on a team of around 1,300 volunteers who give up their time to help us with a wide range of tasks.


Volunteering opportunities

We have a variety of rewarding volunteer roles available across the Hospice, in our shops, lottery department, and at our events.

If you can offer some time, whether weekly, fortnightly or monthly, we would love to hear from you.

Could you be the next member of the LOROS family?

Please note: All Hospice-based volunteering is currently on hold (apart from Reception) however we are still taking applications/interest enquiries. Additionally all Hospice based and patient facing roles are in scope of mandatory vaccination legislation and therefore COVID 19 vaccination is a requirement for role holders of this position.
