Become a Volunteer

Learn new skills and make yourself feel great!

One of the most precious gifts you can give to Teesside Hospice is your time. By becoming a volunteer and giving up just a few hours on a morning or afternoon, you are enabling us to raise the vital funds needed to provide our care.

Below are some of the reasons people choose to volunteer for us:

  • Give something back 
  • Make a difference to the lives of others
  • Help your our local community
  • Help others 
  • Feel valued and part of a team
  • Spend quality time away from work or a busy lifestyle
  • Gain confidence and self-esteem

Volunteering can also be a route to employment, or a chance to try something new which may lead to a career change. From this perspective, volunteering can be a way of:

  • Gaining new skills, knowledge and experience
  • Developing existing skills and knowledge
  • Enhancing a CV
  • Improving one's employment prospects
  • Gaining an accreditation
  • Using your professional skills and knowledge to benefit others

Volunteering also has many social benefits include:

  • Meeting new people and making new friends
  • A chance to socialise
  • Getting to know the local community

We rely on the support of over 400 hardworking volunteers and it is thanks to them we are able to hold fundraising events, successfully operate 11 charity shops, provide a reception service to those visiting the Inpatient Unit, plus much, much more.

These are just a few of the ways our volunteers help us to care for local people and raise the £6,700 needed each and every day of the year to keep our services running. Whatever your skills and experience, we're sure that we have a role to suit you!

No experience necessary, full training provided and hours to suit you.
