Volunteer with us

We'd like to say a big huge thank you to our amazing volunteers, without whom the hospice would struggle to operate. Our #hospiceheroes support us in so many ways; from patient and family support; to catering support; to office support; to gardening; to fundraising support. Thank you!

Volunteering for Wirral Hospice

Enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that your time and support is enabling patients and families to receive the care they need

Volunteers have been involved with Wirral Hospice right from the very beginning, giving their commitment, skills and energy to support our work with patients, their carers and families.  You can make a real difference by joining our team of 500 volunteers.  We have opportunities based at the Hospice and in the community.

Volunteers are usually aged 16 and above. For most volunteering opportunities you do not require particular skills or qualifications as we will give support and training wherever necessary. An enthusiasm for Hospice care and a willingness to try new things are often more important.

People from all walks of life and all ages volunteer for us. We operate an Equal Opportunities policy..
