Volunteer for Dr Kershaw’s

Whilst we are currently in a National lockdown we are still recruiting volunteers to support in our shops once they reopen. If you could give a few hours each week our Volunteer Team would love to hear from you. Safety equipment will be provided such as masks and gloves and we will be happy to discuss the safety measures we have in place for all of our volunteers. Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, we are completing telephone interviews.

We currently have very few opportunities based at the Hospice, however, if you wish to register your interest we are more than happy to speak to you and add you to our waiting list.


Volunteer for Dr Kershaw’s

Volunteers are an integral part of Dr Kershaw’s Hospice and without them we wouldn’t be where we are today. We value each and every one of them, and their support makes such a big difference to our patients and their families.

Why Volunteer?

Our volunteers support the Hospice for many different reasons, and whatever your reason for volunteering, there really is something to suit everyone – whether you’re a student looking to develop skills, hoping to get some experience to help you land a new job or are retired and want to use your time well to support a good cause.

What Could You Volunteer as?

There are so many ways for you to give your time. How about regular shifts at the Hospice - whether on reception, serving refreshments, or even transporting patients. You could help us to raise money for patient care by assisting in one of our four shops or helping out at events.

Some of our volunteers have been with us for over 10 years and the variety of opportunities can make every day different.

Volunteers are a valuable part of Dr Kershaw’s and play an essential role across the Hospice, shops and community.

The gift of your time and skills can make a huge impact, and just a few hours can make a real difference, not only to the hospice and the patients, but also to yourself. Whether you are looking to give something back, gain transferable skills or meet new people, there are endless ways you can get involved.

Show you care, be amazing and become a Dr Kershaw’s volunteer today!
