Keeping services and activities running takes a team effort – with volunteers providing that extra mile of support, effort and care alongside staff. Volunteers support all areas of St Christopher’s, so whether your expertise is sorting donations in our shops, cheering on others at a sponsored run event or providing companionship to others in the local community, we have a volunteer role with your name on it!
From roles supporting patient care and out in the community to volunteering in our shops or helping out at a fundraising event, there are a wealth of opportunities to volunteer with us
Investing in volunteers
Investing in Volunteers is the UK quality standard for all organisations involving volunteers, which aims to improve the quality of the volunteering experience.
Holding the Investing in Volunteers accolade means that an organisation values the enormous contribution made by their volunteers.
Equality and Diversity
We’re committed to equality and to celebrating diversity. We believe a diverse team of volunteers brings unique qualities and strengths to the important work that we do with people and their families facing end of life.
Our commitment to inclusion is about individual experience creating a positive environment in which everyone can influence, share knowledge and have their perspectives valued. We welcome applications from people from all walks of life and backgrounds.
