The Benefits of Volunteering

Although people volunteer for a range of personal reasons, there are some real benefits to this work.

Depending on your age, or the period of life you are in, these benefits might include-

  • Experience that can be included in a CV.
  • An aspect of your work that could be used in an interview for a university course.
  • Valuable contribution to your Record of Achievement.
  • Part of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards scheme.
  • Early awareness of vacancies occurring in the hospice.
  • Possibility of a reference from someone in the organisation.

Our volunteers say that they get a real sense of satisfaction from knowing they have helped someone during a particularly stressful time in their lives.

"The gentle and calm attitude of everyone I have come across is my lasting impression"
