Hospice volunteer roles

We have a range of volunteering opportunities at the hospice, and we’re sure there’ll be something to suit everyone!

We’re looking forward to being able to welcome more of our amazing volunteers back to our hospice sites when it’s safe to do so.

If you’d like to get involved and support the hospice, we urgently need volunteers in our shops across Greater Manchester.
