Volunteering

Volunteering at Willow Wood is more than just a job; it’s a calling to help others.

Why is volunteering Important?

Here at Willow Wood and within our retail operations, we currently have a wonderful team of around 650 volunteers, and there is always room for more! Support from our volunteers allows us to continue to provide vital care for our patients.

Where can you volunteer?

There isn’t a department that would function as efficiently as it does without our volunteers continued support. Whether you’re answering the phone or gardening we have lots of great opportunities if you are interested in a voluntary position, and some of them are listed below:

  • Day Hospice
  • Reception
  • Hospice Shops
  • Hospice Gardens
  • Fundraising
  • Complementary Therapies
  • Admin Staff
  • Distribution Centre
