Volunteer With Us

Volunteers are incredibly important at Nottinghamshire Hospice. We simply couldn’t provide our services to patients without them.

The dedication, kindness and enthusiasm they bring to every role is second to none. Each time a volunteer helps at Nottinghamshire Hospice – whether in the hospice or at one of our charity shops – they really do add life to days for our patients and their families.

Why volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to be part of the community and give something back.
People volunteer for many reasons and we understand that it’s a mutually beneficial relationship. You’re giving us your time and we want ensure it’s enjoyable and fulfilling.

Why volunteer

Volunteering Roles

We have lots of different roles available – from directly volunteering with our patients and their families in the hospice, to being out in the community at one of our charity shops. Each role offers the opportunity to gain experience, give something back and make a difference.


I love volunteering at the hospice, meeting and helping the patients whilst working with like-minded volunteers and staff. It’s a real privilege to give something back to my local community.

Unless you’ve been in the hospice wellbeing and therapy centre you wouldn't know what a friendly, happy area it is. People are very grateful to all the volunteers but actually I feel I get more out of helping out than I give.

After retirement I was looking to volunteer and the Hospice was my choice. I love every minute and give 100% to my tasks. Now in my 10th year!
