There are more than 1,000 Hospiscare volunteers. Some give an hour or two of their time here and there, others help out every week. Each and every one of our volunteers is a valued member of our team, whether they’re sorting through jewellery, keeping our gardens looking beautiful or chatting to patients.
Choosing the role that’s right for you
We have more than 20 volunteering roles for you to choose from, in locations across the heart of Devon. If your passion is photography, you could take photographs of clothes, books and antiques for our online store. If you love fashion, you could style our shop mannequins or uncover designer gems.
“If you’re considering volunteering, think about what suits your skills and personality.”
Some of our volunteers have been with us for more than 25 years! People benefit from volunteering in a number of ways, including:
- Meeting a new circle of friends
- Getting to know the local community
- Learning new skills
- Getting work experience to build a CV
- Taking up a new challenge
- Supporting mental health
- Boosting self-confidence
- Gaining huge satisfaction in giving something back
“I love volunteering! Some weeks I can’t wait to come in and I’ll often do a little extra if needed. The staff in the warehouse are so lovely and welcoming, and it’s great fun.”
