It’s easy to apply online without committing yourself - at this stage you may just want to find out more.

Please use the button below to register your interest. We will then get in touch with you to discuss things in more detail over the phone or invite you in to meet our friendly Volunteering Team. We’ll talk about the most appropriate work for you.

If you would like to proceed, we will ask you to complete a more detailed application form. Should this be successful, you will be allocated your role, receive a general induction and more role-specific training. For a few roles, there is a waiting list but we try to match your wishes and our needs as quickly as possible.

Thank you for thinking of supporting us by kindly giving your valuable time. Our volunteers are at the heart of the Hospice and we look forward to welcoming you to the family.

Open Sessions

We run regular monthly open sessions to explore the volunteering opportunities available at St Raphael's Hospice and the process of becoming a volunteer. Part of each session is a short presentation on the ethos and philosophy of St. Raphael’s and the care and services we provide to our patients and their families. If you would be interested in attending a session, please complete the 'Open Sessions' section of the 'Apply to become a volunteer' form above.
