Volunteer Vacancies

Volunteers support hospice staff in a wide range of roles both at the hospice - such as receptionists, gardeners, patient buddies, administrators and ward clerks - as well as out in the community - fundraising and working in our charity shops.

We currently have volunteer vacancies in the following areas:

Shop Volunteers

We are currently looking for shop volunteers in our Aigburth, Breck Road, Formby, Netherton and Walton Vale shops. We have a variety of different roles available to suit your experience and availability. Our volunteers join our shop communities for many different reasons - whether it be to explore a passion for sustainable fashion,  vintage clothing,  gain work based skills, or meet new people. Find out more here.

Volunteer Van Assistants

We are currently looking for one or two volunteers to assist in the day to day running of our charity shops by collecting and delivering furniture and stock. Find out more here.

Kitchen Volunteer (hospice based)

We are looking for a Kitchen Volunteer to support our catering team in food preparation at the hospice. This is a very sociable and fun role in a lovely team but it can be fairly demanding so it would suit someone who likes to be kept busy. Find out more here.

Receptionist Volunteer (hospice based)

Our receptionists are a welcoming face and first point of contact for potential patients and visitors to the Hospice, providing a comprehensive reception and administrative service on a voluntary basis to support the smooth running of the Hospice. Much of the role is telephone call handling, so a good telephone manner is required. Find out more here.

Ward Assistant Volunteer (hospice based)

We are currently looking for volunteer ward assistants at the hospice to provide support to our clinical team. The role includes, but is not limited to, providing a patient befriender service, supporting patients at meal times, and carrying out general duties as directed by the clinical staff. This could include meeting and greeting visitors, storing clean laundry, and answering the nurse call bell. Find out more here.

Meet Siobhan McLoughlin, our Volunteer Co-ordinator.
