Due to the current situation with COVID-19 our volunteering programme has been adapted accordingly. We have limited the number of volunteers currently supporting us at our Hospice and community roles. Our volunteers are a vital part of our team and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back once it’s safe to do so. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

While our existing volunteer programme has been adapted, we are still currently recruiting volunteers at City Hospice for selected roles. We are adhering to government guidelines and have strict safety measures in place. If you are interested to support our charity, please get in touch with our Volunteer Officer Sam today by emailing volunteer@cityhospice.org.uk

Perhaps you’re looking for a healthy way to support a worthwhile cause and regular exercise takes your interest. We’re looking for reliable volunteers to help us in this brand new role. This is a very flexible opportunity that can be undertaken as and when it’s convenient for you. Being able to drive would be an advantage but is not essential.

Patient Drivers

Patient Drivers support with City Hospice’s day centres by transporting patients to and from their homes to our hospice in Whitchurch. Our patients are based across the city and often need support with transport to attend on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. By using your own car to transport our patients, you’ll be enabling them to socialise with other people, receive complementary therapies, and have some much-needed entertainment.

Our patient groups run Tuesday and Thursday between 1:30pm and 3:30pm, with patients coming from across the city.

Some of our volunteers have shared with us why they enjoy being a patient volunteer driver:

Kevin tells us “I find volunteering for City Hospice such a rewarding experience. I really look forward to seeing our patients and listening to their stories. I volunteer because City Hospice provided such great care to my wife and I want to give something back so the charity can continue to support those who need it in the local community”

Derek says “The Hospice has a need and I have a car and it’s lovely to volunteer for such a great Charity”

Nick tells us “I volunteer at City Hospice to give something back to the Community”

To register your interest to become a 2021 Patient Driver, please email volunteer@cityhospice.org.uk

Volunteering for students and young people

We know how important work experience can be for university students which is why we’re always on the lookout for those who have something to give to City Hospice. Whether it’s getting experience with our fundraisers, helping our Marketing Manager with social media or graphic design or helping in one of our seven charity shops, there’s something worthwhile to go on your CV. If you and a group of friends/classmates want to lend a hand and give some time to Cardiff’s local hospice, please email volunteer@cityhospice.org.uk
