Volunteer About volunteering About Volunteering Thank you so much for visiting this page and expressing an interest in becoming a volunteer for your local hospice. Our volunteers are so important to us and without them we would be unable to provide the excellent level of care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We welcome anyone, no matter what your motivation, circumstances or background. Giving us your time makes a direct and positive impact on our patients, their families, our staff and the service we provide for the community of Merton and Sutton. You will work alongside paid staff offering families the extra little touches which make all the difference. We have a roles for everyone here at St Raphael's. Whether it is serving coffee in our Orangery Café or being a Ward Companion, helping to organise fundraising activities in our Supporter Groups, visiting patients at the home as one of our Hospice Neighbours or working in one of our high street stores. As a volunteer you will not only be part of a team and make new friends, you will receive training, on-going support, lunch and relevant travel expenses. If you are retired and would like to put old skills to good use or if you are a student looking to gain new skills and work experience to enhance your CV - if you want to give back, we have something for you. Check out our current opportunities to see what role would be a good fit for you along with our volunteer FAQs if you have any further queries: Current opportunities Volunteering FAQs Volunteer stories Volunteer events We have achieved our third accreditation with the Investing in Volunteers Award for good practice in volunteer management. The attainment of this prestigious award demonstrates how we have continued to provide the gold standard in volunteer experience since 2016.
