We can only offer volunteer roles to those aged 18 or over.  We do occasionally have availability for volunteers aged 16 and 17 to work in our shops and we also, on occasions, offer Duke of Edinburgh award placements to young people aged 14 and over.  If this is of interest please email us for further information.

We strongly advise that all applicants are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 on application to Hospice based and patient facing roles, if they are able, as a means for employees and volunteers to protect their own health and that of our vulnerable patients.
