Volunteers' Week at Hospice in the Weald

We are excited to be celebrating Volunteers’ Week from 1-7 June, showing our appreciation for our excellent volunteers across the Hospice. Volunteers are a fundamental part of how Hospice in the Weald works and delivers services to thousands of people across northern East Sussex and West Kent. We have around 250 full time employees and over 1000 people who regularly give their time volunteering. Together, all of these people make our operations run as smoothly and as well as they do. Thank you to everyone who offers their service, its much appreciated!

The value of help

Our volunteers help us deliver care to those in need in a cost-effective way, helping us make the funds we have go further. As a result, we can offer more services to more people with the money we have – over 90% of our funding comes from you, our supporters. In fact, if we were to put a value to the time that our volunteers give us, government’s contribution to our costs would be a small percentage of 1%. Your contribution really does make an impact.

Additional skills and experience

Hospice in the Weald also benefits from the many additional skills, knowledge and experiences that our volunteers bring and share. There is a limit to the skills and experience that we can afford to hire, so having such a deep font of additional knowledge is something that we benefit from hugely, and can only hope we receive more of in the future. You’ll find volunteers throughout our operations: drivers, receptionists, fundraisers, retail associates, event day staff, marketers, gardeners, accountants the list and the skills go on and on.  


Why choose us?

We hope that our volunteers get something back from this work, including the chance to see how people cope with the trauma of end of life and the bravery that many patients approach it with. We hope that they see how generous people are, not just with their time, but also with their skills and knowledge. And, above all, how they can make a difference in other people’s lives – not just in the lives of our patients, but also their loved ones and the lives of other volunteers.

Get in touch!

We are always looking for more volunteers to help us so that we can offer our services to even more people who need them. So, if you have a little spare time, a skill you think we might be able to use or you‘d like to improve your CV, get in touch! We know we can use your skills, whatever they might be, and we think you’ll get a lot out of it, too.
