Volunteers are essential to the work of St Teresa’s Hospice – we simply couldn’t do what we do without them!

Volunteering for the Hospice helps us to make a difference to patients and their families lives. From direct help, to retail and helping at fundraising events, there are opportunities across the Hospice.

We are currently looking for volunteers for both our Retail and our Family Support Teams.


We currently need volunteers to help St T’s Retail in our stores. If you are able to spare a couple of hours each week to volunteer, please contact [email protected]

Family Support

We are in need of volunteer counsellors to help support our Family support and Bereavement Teams. If this is something that you are interested in, please contact the Hospice with your expressions of interest by phoning 01325 254 321 and asking for Ben Bourne.
