Volunteering at Nightingale House

With your support we will strengthen our ability to raise much needed funds for our hospice, apply now to get involved!

It’s easy to join our VOLUNTEAM all we need are two references in order to process your application. These should include one work/school/professional reference and one reference from someone who has known you for over two years. Following an interview, CRB Check (if appropriate) and Induction Training you will be assigned your volunteer role. We will arrange your work around your availability but it really helps us if the hours can be consistent as possible. Obviously, we realise things can crop up unexpectedly and just ask you contact us as soon as possible if you cannot fill your shift. We look forward to welcoming you to our volunteer team.

We rely on the help of over 500 volunteers to be able to provide the best possible care for our patients. If you are able to support Nightingale House with a few hours of your time each week, please get in touch.

Retirement has provided me with two important gifts, time and opportunity. Volunteering at Nightingale House is an effective and very beneficial way of sharing these gifts and helping support such a worthwhile and important cause.

Training Programme

Nightingale House Hospice is committed to the provision of training for volunteers that is ongoing and appropriate throughout the Volunteer Placement. Every effort is made to ensure that all volunteers are given equal opportunity to access appropriate training and support.

Induction Training

New volunteers receive a general induction session on the nature and purpose of Nightingale House Hospice together with details of Fire Safety, Health and Safety and Moving and Handling requirements.

Further Induction Training

Sessions are arranged for volunteers with specific roles within the Hospice and include Infection Control and Food Hygiene courses.

Identification of Support

Support for volunteers is ongoing and will be made available from the start of the placement. Identification of a Volunteer Mentor will enable volunteers to discuss any concerns they have regarding the role.
