Complementary therapies are an important part of the overall care given in hospices.  Wirral Hospice St John’s offers a wide range of the most effective complementary therapies available.  All therapies given in the hospice are truly holistic, helping to ease physical pain, anxiety, and spiritual distress.

We are looking for complementary therapy volunteers to support the wider complementary therapy team in treating patients, carers and hospice staff. They also work as part of the patient and family support services team and liaise with them at all times.

Interested in these or other volunteer roles we might have?

We always convey a 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 hospice heroes 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.

For most volunteering opportunities you do not always 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 (from 16 and above) volunteer for us. If you have the time and skills to make a difference by volunteering, please contact Phil or Sarah at volunteering@wirralhospice.org or call 0151 334 2778. Ask for volunteer services and tell us how you can help.
