St Peter & St James Hospice & Continuing Care Centre is situated in the heart of the Sussex countryside near Haywards Heath, providing specialist short and longer term integrated palliative care.

We are seeking volunteers to help provide support to our patients whilst they are transported between the Hospice and their home. Working alongside a volunteer driver you will assist patients to get in and out of our hospice vehicles and travel with them when they visit our Wellbeing Centre.

Experience of working in a voluntary post with patients would be advantageous however it is not essential. You will be kind, patient and caring and enjoy communicating with people. You will also be competent in manoeuvring a wheelchair.

Our Wellbeing Centre offers a valuable service to its patients and families and we are looking for additional volunteers to help transport our patients from their homes so they can enjoy taking part in the many services that our hospice provides.

This voluntary role is subject to an enhanced DBS check and you will also need your own reliable transport to get to and from the Hospice.
