Volunteering at Beaumond House
We are so grateful to the many people who give their time in support of the work of Beaumond House Community Hospice.
Our volunteers are a vital part of our team and contribute to almost every area of our work. We recognise that without the 200+ volunteers who give us the precious gift of their time, we simply couldn’t deliver our services to our patients and their families in the way that we do. Our volunteers donate 100’s of hours each month, bringing with them a wealth of skills, experience and enthusiasm.
How you can Help ...
Beaumond House Hospice makes a big difference in the lives of patients and their loved ones and as a volunteer we offer you the opportunity to play a part in this, we simply could not do it without the passion and commitment of our all volunteers, they make a real difference.
Throughout the organisation we recognise that we are a team, working together to provide excellent services, so wherever you choose to volunteer your contribution will make a difference to someone’s life.
Many of our volunteers make friends because of volunteering, and many find that they grow in confidence.
You will receive full training and learn about the work of the hospice, as well as gaining valuable skills and experience. Volunteering is a great way to improve your CV.
Here are some reasons why people choose to volunteer:
• There is a sense of ‘giving back’ or to ‘make a difference’
• To have a rewarding experience
• To make good use of spare time
• To make new friends
• To learn new skills and gain new experiences or to put existing skills to a good use
• To get involved in the community and make an invaluable contribution.
• For enjoyment
