Our volunteers are vital to the work of Pilgrims Hospices – without them we simply couldn’t continue to provide such a high level of patient care and support.
Around 1,500 volunteers are involved with Pilgrims Hospices, across all three sites and in the community. Volunteer support means that we need fewer members of paid staff. There are lots of reasons why people volunteer with Pilgrims – find out why! Please take a look at our Guidelines for volunteers
Guidance Notes For Volunteers Pilgrims Hospices volunteers are vital to the successful running of our organisation. We could not exist without our dedicated team of volunteers. Volunteering is about developing your skills, meeting extraordinary people and working as part of an enthusiastic team. Pilgrims Hospices has developed a behaviour and values framework that underpins our success when providing palliative care to those in our community. In order that we can successfully meet the needs of our community volunteers are expected to adhere to these values by acting with dignity and respect when communicating with staff, colleagues, patients families and of course patients.
