Volunteers are an essential part of palliative care and are able to offer the gift of time, a listening ear and help with a multitude of things beyond that possible for doctors, nurses and professional staff to give.

Laurel Hospice volunteers

Volunteers help in our community (people being cared for at home), in a hospice or palliative care ward or unit, with bereavement counselling, the Wellbeing Service (complementary therapies – massage, reiki, aromatherapy and more), Client Biography Service, event or administration support.
