Volunteering with us

We’d like to say a big huge thank you to our amazing volunteers, without whom the hospice would struggle to operate.

In normal times they are simply ‘here’ for us, at the hospice and in our Wirral Community. They’re part of the hospice family, they are, very often in fact, the ‘face’ of the hospice.

Our #hospiceheroes support us in so many ways; from patient and family support; to catering support; to office support; in our charity shops; to gardening; to fundraising support.

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.

Find out more about how you might be able to help.

Do you have a passion for fashion?   Can you spot a quality item or a great bargain?  Do you enjoy helping customers?  If yes to all of these, a Wirral Hospice charity shop might be the place for you.  Why not join a friendly team at one of our seven shops across Wirral, you can even try a taster session before deciding to apply.
