Our staff are wonderfully supported by local volunteers across all departments. We couldn't do what we do without them. Could you be part of our amazing team?

Why Volunteer?
There are lots of benefits to volunteering at Rossendale Hospice:
  • Gaining valuable hands on experience in a healthcare/hospice setting
  • Making a positive difference to the lives of our patients and supporters
  • Making the most of your skills and experience to help others
  • Meeting new people and making new friends
  • Training and on-going support as necessary
Whatever your motivation you will feel part of our team and you will be playing your part in ensuring that we deliver the very best care to our patients and their families and friends.

How much time do I have to give?
It's entirely up to you! Some of our volunteers dedicate a a few regular hours a week, whereas others offer their time on an ad-hoc basis for events or special days. 
We're happy to work with you to find what suits your lifestyle.

Is it just the shops you need help with?
NO! 
Our chairty shops ar a great source of income for Rossendale Hospice and help raise our profile in the community.
We always need volunteers to help serve customers, sort through donations and make our shop look its best.

BUT... there are lots of other wys to thelp too..

What can I help with?
Whatever your skills are, we're sure you can bring them to the Hospice.

We're always looking for people to help with:
  • Driving patients to therapies
  • Fundraising at events 
  • Administrative Support
  • Hospice Reception
  • Wellbeing hospitality and refreshments
  • Befriending
Whatever you have to offer, whenever you can offer it, we can turn your time into a valuable contribution.

Can I offer my professional services?
Absolutely.
If you or your business has something you'd like to offer us free of charge, we'd love to accept.

We have volunteer complimentary therapists, hairdressers, nutritionists and artists who have all helped out with our Wellbeing sessions.

We've also benefitted from people offering gardening, decorating and printing and video services for free too. If it's your own enterprise, it may even have benefits for your business. Checkout our Corporate Allies page.
