Our amazing volunteers help us reach more people who need our help, in the Hospice and out in the community. We couldn’t do our work without them.

Volunteering update

Most of our 600+ volunteers have been ‘standing by’ during lockdown. As we gradually reopen, we look forward to welcoming them back.

We will also be looking for new volunteers to join us, so if you want to find out more about what it is like to volunteer in the Hospice and how you can help, please read on.

All our current vacancies will be listed on this page, and on the Hospice Facebook and Twitter feeds. And if you have any questions, please get in touch with us.

Meet our volunteers

Some of our volunteers have shared their volunteering stories with us. People volunteer for different reasons and at different times, but they all have something special in common - they gladly give their time to help others and we are so lucky that they are part of our team.

Helping us deliver our strategy

Our governors are responsible for steering the Hospice’s policies and plans. They are important ambassadors for our work and they ensure that we are accountable to our regulators and the public. Their skills and knowledge bring different perspectives and expertise to St Columba's Hospice Care. Our governors are also volunteers. We asked David (pictured) and Nick, about their roles.
