At Rotherham Hospice


Rotherham Hospice is supported by around 350 volunteers who commit time and energy to the services the Hospice provides.

It’s no exaggeration to say that Rotherham Hospice would not be able to run without our volunteers!

We have an amazing mix of volunteers from 18 to 90 years old; from those who come for a few months to learn new skills, to volunteers who have been with us for 25 years. This diversity is something we really value as each person brings something different to their roles.

Volunteering is often seen as “selflessly helping those in need”, which can put people off who think they are perhaps not saintly enough. In reality, voluntary roles at Rotherham Hospice are well-defined roles which mutually benefit the volunteer and the Hospice. 

Our volunteers do such a great job because they love what they do and gets as much out of it as they put in!
