Why Volunteer for EACH?

It's important to us that our volunteers get the most of their experience, so we like to provide a suitable and well supported volunteering role for each of our volunteers.

All of our volunteers receive an induction, followed by training and support from their allocated supervisor. Volunteers also have access to our library full of fantastic resources should you wish to use them. We cover the cost of out of pocket expenses to enable everyone who wants to volunteer the opportunity to do so, and volunteers based at a hospice site are also entitled to a complimentary lunch. 

In addition to this, you can:
  • Make a difference - by volunteering ​for EACH you’ll be playing a part in supporting the services that we provide to children with life-threatening conditions and their families in your local community
  • Meet new and like-minded people
  • Use the valuable skills you already have, and develop a range of new ones too
  • Build confidence
  • Get an insight into what we do – to build your own knowledge, assist with career choices or add to your CV
  • Have fun and feel great!
But don't just take our word for it! Take a look at what our volunteers have to say
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’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
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • 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
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
