Process of becoming a volunteer
Volunteers complete an application form, are interviewed by our Volunteer Coordinator, have references checked, undergo a Vulnerable Sector Check and Palliative Care Training before volunteers are placed in contact with those in our care. Volunteers are key members of our interdisciplinary team and they provide us with support in a variety of roles.
