Impact of Volunteering

The contributions of volunteers are essential to the success of St. Joseph’s Hospice. And the ways that volunteers can help serve people living with a palliative illness, their family, caregivers and the bereaved are as diverse as their own stories.

In 2017/18, we were fortunate to work with 325 volunteers who provided 18,962 hours of compassionate care in our residence and in the community. That’s equivalent to more than nine full-time staff members!

We are very grateful for the gift of volunteers – watch our ‘Thank You’ video below as we showcase just a few amazing faces.
