Our volunteers are invaluable to the charity and are 'Making every day count' for our patients, children and families who are cared for by the hospices.

We have more than 800 volunteers who donate 160,000 hours each year. They all bring a huge benefit to Havens Hospices, not least saving us a huge £2.25 million each year.

but our volunteers help the charity in many different ways:

  • A range of experiences and ages
  • Skills and knowledge
  • Additional support
  • New ideas
  • Diversity
  • Enthusiasm

we have three areas where you can volunteer across the hospices:

To apply to volunteer please download the enquiry form, then complete and return this to us. We will then contact you to arrange an informal interview date which we take place within four weeks of receiving of your enquiry form.

As part of our recruitment process, all volunteers need to provide details of two referees and also to complete a Criminal Records Declaration Form. For certain roles you may also be required to complete a Disclosure Barring Service Form.

We have a robust recruitment and induction process in place as it is very important that you feel welcome when you join us.

We want to make sure that you understand your role, how your contribution will benefit our patients, children and families, and provide you with the necessary training so that you feel you are able to work safely and effectively.
