Join Our Volunteer Family

Volunteering is a rewarding and empowering way to make a difference to someone’s life that can help give meaning to yours. 

Time is one of the most precious things we can give each other. Often just having the time to make a cuppa for a patient, chat with a whānau member, or help at one of our Hospice Op Shops can make all the difference to our organisation and the people we care for. You may like to be behind the scenes or only have limited time to give and that’s ok – there is room for everyone on our volunteer team! Each and every one of our volunteers are amazing in their own right and they make a huge contribution to our organisation. 

No volunteer experience is necessary to join our team. All of our volunteers attend Hospice orientation programmes and we provide training for specific roles as required.
