We believe that the individual personality, character and outlook of each of our volunteers is what makes the place so special.

The personal qualities we look for in all of our volunteers are: 

  • Kindness and empathy
  • Flexibility and adaptability
  • Working with others
  • Open to learning
  • Commitment and sensitivity

St Wilfrid’s Hospice was built for the community by the community and volunteers help us to keep it that way. Don’t just take our word for it though. Meet some of our amazing volunteers and find out what volunteering for St Wilfrid’s means to them.

Yes! Some of our volunteer roles, such as hosting, have a set shift pattern, however, we understand that you have lots of other things to do and will agree on a time commitment that works for you.
