Volunteering

Volunteering at Pendleside

Our army of volunteers play an integral and essential role in the delivery of Hospice services. They strengthen our work by offering help and support in a variety of settings, for example within our clinical services, fundraising, family and bereavement support, gardens, administration, and our charity shops. Without their support we would not be able to provide the level of support we do to the people who need our care.

If you would like to join our team of volunteers in supporting the valuable work we do, please check below for current volunteering opportunites available.

Inpatient Unit

You will be responsible for ensuring that patients who wish to eat are given the options available from the menu, ringing down to the kitchen to order meals, serving meals and drinks to patients and clearing trays away once patients have finished.

If you are available during the days/time below please complete our Volunteer Application form and send it back to us either in the post, via email or in person at the Hospice Reception.

We currently require 2 volunteers to fill the following vacancies:

Tuesday Tea Time - 5.00pm to 7.00pm

Drivers - Meal on Wheels

Pendleside Hospice launched its new Meals on Wheels service last year. The hospice already cares for people in our community in their own homes and we see this as an extension of that service. We are now looking for more volunteer drivers to deliver meals and conduct a welfare check to make sure clients are safe and well.

We are looking for volunteers who can spare us approximately 2 hours a day between the hours of 11:30am and 1:30pm over a 7 day week. You can assist us on 1 day or several days - it is up to you.

For more information on this fulfilling and rewarding role, please download the Meals on Wheels Role Profile document.

If you wish to apply to be a Driver/Welfare Volunteer please complete our Volunteer Application form, located on this web page.

Please note all Drivers will need DBS clearance prior to commencement.

If you are interested in volunteering with us please complete the volunteer application form and send to Julie Hodgkinson either by post or email:- [email protected] or Tel: 01282 440159
