How To Help > Volunteering


Volunteers play an integral role in the provision of hospice services. They assist staff by taking responsibility for a series of roles including:

  • Reception
  • In-patient Unit
  • Day Hospice
  • Drivers
  • Fundraising
  • Shops
  • Cafe

Who can be a volunteer?

Anyone over the age of 16, who has time to spare, can volunteer to help S.A.H.S. Working hours are flexible to suit other commitments, which you may have. Training will be necessary for certain volunteer roles, whilst others can be learnt on the job. References will be required for all volunteer roles.

What can be achieved as a volunteer?

Volunteering to help such a worthy cause makes a huge difference to the lives of our patients, their families and carers. As a volunteer you will be given the opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends and feel part of a team. Benefits from volunteering include:

  • Learning new skills
  • Make new friends
  • Lots of fun
  • Helping others at SAHS
  • Feel Valued
