Specialists in palliative care


St John’s Hospice volunteers are genuinely vital to our work. Without volunteers we would not be able to provide the outstanding services that patients and families need. So, when you volunteer for St John’s you are ensuring our work can continue.
From ad hoc help at events, to regular weekly hours, from gardening and maintenance to admin, fundraising and helping with patients, we have a role to suit everyone. You don’t need any special skills, and if you feel you have a particular skill or experience just let us know!

What we really look for is enthusiasm and a desire to help your local community. Please get in touch for an informal obligation free chat.
