Our volunteers are crucial to almost every aspect of what we do. Without people generously giving their time and skills, we would be unable to continue delivering vital care and support to our patients and their families. In 2019/20 alone our volunteers contributed 80,172 hours of their time.

There are so many ways you can get involved as a St. Michael’s Hospice volunteer, whether it is at the Hospice, in the community or in one of our shops.

Volunteering with our retail team

With 11 shops located across North Hampshire including our specialist Furniture Store, we have a wide range of volunteering opportunities available. Our retail volunteers hold a vital role in ensuring the ongoing running of our stores, assisting with tasks including serving customers and sorting donations. Our donation centre is the hub of our retail operation with donations being dropped off and sorted by our team of staff and volunteers. Our van drivers assist by collecting and dropping off our donated goods to our shops across North Hampshire.


Volunteering at the Hospice

At our Hospice in Basingstoke, we offer a number of patient-facing roles that provide assistance to patients, families and staff throughout our inpatient unit.

Please note, due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, certain Hospice based volunteers (other than those specifically advertised on our volunteer vacancies page) are currently stood down. We are still accepting new applications, with all volunteer roles listed on our application form. Once we have received your application form, our Voluntary Services Manager will get in touch with you directly. Once guidelines confirm that it safe to do so, volunteering will resume.

Volunteering in the community

Throughout the year we have a calendar of fundraising events for which we often need volunteers to lend a hand. If you are interested in volunteering at any of our upcoming events, please contact our team using the details provided below.
