Volunteering

Our hugely valuable team of 950 volunteers are at the heart of EACH. Without them, EACH simply wouldn’t be the same and we’re hugely grateful for the gift of their time.

We cover a large area of East Anglia and North Essex with volunteer opportunities at our hospice sites in Milton, Quidenham and Ipswich as well as our local office sites and Central Distribution Centre in Thetford.

We welcome people from all walks of life and backgrounds and have a variety of opportunities. Take a look at the volunteer roles to find something to suit you.

If you’d like know more about volunteering for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices please contact us on 01223 205190 or email Volunteer Co-ordinator Clare Bates (clare.bates@each.org.uk).

  • I love leaving the hospice knowing Skyla has had a good time. She has so little in her life which she can enjoy, but the music and hydro we’ve found two things in one place which mean so much. Avril and Dave, Skyla’s mum and dad
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • The charity has made a big difference to our lives – they’re invaluable to us Avril and Dave, Skyla’s mum and dad
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • Music and hydro therapy sessions offer her quality of life – which is why EACH is so important to us. Avril and Dave, Skyla’s mum and dad
  • Doctors tell us Skyla isn’t aware of what’s going on around her, but her reaction to music and hydrotherapy make us think differently. Avril and Dave, Skyla’s mum and dad
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
