Offering a service of comprehensive care & support


St Francis Hospice relies heavily on volunteers for assistance in many areas.  The success of Hospice can be attributed to the hard work of many dedicated men and women who, over the years, have generously offered their time and expertise to the cause.

The following are areas in which volunteers are most effective:

Patient Care:  On completion of training in the field of Patient Care, volunteers are a valuable asset to our Hospice and are deployed

to care for patients in their own homes.

Bereavement Support:  On completion of the bereavement course, trained volunteer counsellors help families to cope with the loss of a loved one.

Hospice Shops:  Help us meet customer needs with a friendly face and willing hands.

Tending our Gardens:  A group of volunteers keep the Hospice garden in tip-top condition.  Share your knowledge and love of plants with us.
